Kate DiCamillo - Beverly Right Here—at St. Paul's Church

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 2:00pm

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. 

This event is an author talk including Q & A. Estimated time is 45-60 minutes. It will be followed by a signing.

Kate will sign and personalize an unlimited number of Beverly, Right Here, and ONE additional backlist title per person. 

Seating will be first come, first served.

Books and tickets will only be available for pick-up at will-call at the event. Will call opens at 1 pm. Additional DiCamillo books will be for sale at the event.

1 Book and 1 ticket: $23 ($21 for Members)
1 Book and 2 tickets: $29 ($27 for Members)
