I am a big fan of Kate DiCamillo and am anxiously awaiting my copy of her newest book, The Magician's Elephant. I would love to start a book discussion over at the Joy of Children's Literature Ning. The start date would be in plenty of time for everyone to get a copy and read it. Come on, join the Ning and we'll have a lively discussion!
A live webcast with Kate DiCamillo will be held on Octorber 25th at 1:00 PST/4:00 EST, hosted by Sidewell Friends School in Washington, DC. Click on the link and register for what I am sure will be a great experience. I've already signed up!
