"It takes a lot of bravery to be kind": NPR interview with Kate DiCamillo

August 18, 2016

There are few authors who are able to reach a wide variety of ages, backgrounds and learning levels as Kate DiCamillo. She is the beloved author of many of our students' favorite books, and one of my personal favorites. Over the summer, she gave an interview on the NPR program All Things Considered after her newest novel, Raymie Nightingale, was released. She speaks about the book, but also about the nature of characters, kindness, and family dynamics. Enjoy!
