The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, Milwaukee's Boswell Book Company, and Oconomowoc's Books & Company present a very special event with Kate DiCamillo, the author of many books for children, including Flora & Ulysses and The Tale of Despereaux, both of which received Newbery Medals. Kate DiCamillo is not just one of the most acclaimed childrens book authors writing today - shes also one of the most beloved. Her events are incredibly popular and it's hard to walk away from her presentations without being moved to tears. DiCamillo only does a handful of public speaking events in the United States each year. Milwaukee's Boswell Book Company, the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts, and Oconomowoc's Books & Company  are excited to be bringing fans the first metro Milwaukee event with DiCamillo in five years.

Tickets are $22.00 and include admission to the event, all taxes and fees, and a copy of DiCamillos latest picture book, La La La. A signing will follow the talk. There is no gift card option for this event, but don't forget, La La La will make a great gift for the upcoming holiday season.

**Please note that there are special signing restrictions for this event. DiCamillo will sign any number of copies of La La La, attendees are limited to three backlist titles (either brought from home or bought at the Wilson Center), and one of these backlist titles can be personalized.


In her new picture book, La La La, a little girl stands alone and sings, but hears no response. Gathering her courage and her curiosity, she skips farther out into the world, singing away to the trees and the pond and the reeds, but no song comes back to her. Day passes into night, and the girl dares to venture into the darkness toward the light of the moon, becoming more insistent in her singing, climbing as high as she can, but still there is silence in return. Dejected, she falls asleep on the ground, only to be awakened by an amazing sound. She has been heard, at last. With the simplest of narratives and the near absence of words, Kate DiCamillo conveys a lonely childs yearning for someone who understands. With a subtle palette and captivating expressiveness, DiCamillo and illustrator Jaime Kim bring to life an endearing character and a transcendent landscape that invite readers along on an emotionally satisfying journey.

Kate DiCamillo's other middle grade titles include The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, Because of Winn-Dixie, and Raymie Nightingale. She is also the author of two chapter book series, one featuring Mercy Watson, and the other, in collaboration with Alison McGhee, starring Bink and Gollie. She is also the former National Ambassador for Young Peoples Literature.
