‘It’s miraculous and it’s mysterious’ – Kate DiCamillo on WINN-DIXIE’s 20th Anniversary

It’s rare when I talk about The Yarn podcast over here, but we have a special episode up today that I think you might like.

My co-host Colby Sharp interviewed Kate DiCamillo about Because of Winn-Dixie, which turns 20 this year.

I think my favorite moment is when Kate tries to tell Colby how many copies have sold, but can’t do it without tearing up.

  1. I loved this interview! Shortly after listening to it a reader came in the library and told me his teacher was reading BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE and I shared than number with him. We were both in awe!
