Kate DiCamillo, two-time Newbery-winning author most recently of Raymie Nightingale, stops by the podcast to talk about her time as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, how you can’t write anything without revealing yourself, and likening writing a story to trying to get a wild animal to eat out of your hand.
