Reading ambassador DiCamillo receives A.P. Anderson Award
Kate DiCamillo left balmy, busy Florida for cool, calm Minnesota at age 30 and discovered that leaving behind what she was then opened her to becoming what she could be.
“I fell in love with the sky,” the award-winning children’s author explained to a crowd gathered to honor her on the occasion of receiving the 2014 A.P. Anderson Award. Ceremonies were held May 9 at the Anderson Center.
