Main Library - Join beloved storyteller and award-winning children's author Kate DiCamillo for a discussion of her new novel, "Louisiana's Way Home." After the discussion, DiCamillo will sign and personalize an unlimited number of copies of her new book, as well as one copy of any of her previously released titles per person (“Flora & Ulysses,” “The Tale of Despereaux,” “Because of Winn-Dixie,” etc.).
DiCamillo has almost 30 million books in print worldwide, and "Louisiana's Way Home" is the follow-up to her #1 New York Times best-selling novel "Raymie Nightingale." In its 2016 review of "Raymie Nightingale," the New York Times noted that Louisiana "is one of DiCamillo's most singular and arresting creations" and that she "delights on every page." While fans often ask her to write more about their favorite characters, DiCamillo has never been compelled to revisit the world of a previous novel - until now. Copies of "Louisiana's Way Home" will be available to purchase on-site through representatives of Blue Bicycle Books.
DiCamillo's books feature themes of hope and belief amid impossible circumstances, and their messages of shared humanity and connectedness have resonated with readers of all ages around the world.
