Kate DiCamillo named National Ambassador for Young People's Literature!

"Stories Connect Us" - Kate DiCamillo 

Newbery author Kate Di Camillo has been chosen as the new National Ambassador of Young People's Literature, taking over from Walter Dean Myers. In 2008, inaugural post was awarded to Jon Scieszka with the goal of raising awareness and promoting literature for children with the hopes of competing against the constant pressure from other forms of entertainment like video games and television.
