Description of Pictures: I saw Kate in the main store after her talk across the street at St. Paul's Church. She said she prefers printed books -- she was glad that ebooks were available when necessary but she really appreciated the physical medium.
Kate DiCamillo - Beverly Right Here—at St. Paul's Church
Politics and Prose presents two-time Newbery Medalist and beloved children’s book author Kate DiCamillo in an event featuring her newest book, Beverly, Right Here. With this book, DiCamillo returns to the world first explored in Raymie Nightingale and Louisiana’s Way to focus on the tough-talking, inescapably tenderhearted Beverly.
Prompted by the loss of her dog, Buddy, and tired of her mother’s lack of concern for her, Beverly Tapinski hitches a ride to Tamaray Beach. Life hasn’t been fair to Beverly, but fortunately, opportunities fall into place with a job in a fish restaurant and a place to stay with the elderly, quirky and kind Iola Jenkins. Gradually, Beverly’s empty feelings of insurmountable loss are replaced with hope discovered through unexpected friendships. Beverly’s story is revealed through Kate DiCamillo’s observant and tender voice in a touching, funny, and fearless conclusion to her sequence of novels about the Three Rancheros.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
