Holy Bagumba! Celebrations & Contests for Kate DiCamillo’s New Book!

flora and ulyssesKate DiCamillo’s newest book, Flora & Ulysses : The Illuminated Adventures, is coming out on Tuesday, September 24, 2013.  And for those of you near the Twin Cities, you have a wonderful opportunity to join her at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul that evening at 7:00 p.m.  Kate will be reading from her charming new book; she will also have a lively conversation with MPR’s Cathy Wurzer, before answering questions from the audience.  (Contact the Fitzgerald Theater or Ticketmaster to purchase tickets.)

But that’s not all!

Teachers, you can win a set of 25 tickets for you and your classroom to attend the party!  They will have a chance to hear one of their favorite authors and ask her questions. Enter to win this premium set of tickets for a delightful and entertaining evening full of prizes and surprises—and become the most popular teacher in your school!

And whether or not you live near the Twin Cities, there is also a great opportunity for all the future directors, actors, writers, and producers in your class—and for the adults in your school as well.  Create a 30-60 second video-taped commercial promoting Flora & Ulysses : The Illuminated Adventures.  Use your imagination, and be as creative and fun as you want.  The winners will have their commercial spots shown during the national launch of the book…ON STAGE at the Fitzgerald Theater!  You’ll also receive an autographed first edition of the book.  Enter to win this contest and find out more information. (The deadline for entry has been extended.)

Check back here tomorrow for a review of Flora & Ulysses.
