Video of the Month: Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Acceptance Speech

Before you press play, please make sure you have a tissue or six on hand. Happy watching! 


  1. Oh. My. Word. Three tissues.

    Thinking of my mom (who is celebrating her 70th birthday this weekend), and my daughters (to whom I give books and always call them home). What a speech.

  2. Wow. If ever I need to remember what kind of impact I want my life to have, I will watch this again. And again.

  3. Thank you for sharing. What a beautiful expression of one single word.
