Kate DiCamillo wants to spread the joy of reading

Kate DiCamillo wasn't always a writer. She didn't actually start writing until she was 30 years old. It took six years before she was published, but it was her dream and so she kept trying. Now, DiCamillo is the author of children’s books “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “Tale of Despereaux" and she was recently appointed the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.
