Catalog Number: 20071130, 20060816
Both Lemony Snicket (the pen name of Daniel Handler) and Kate DiCamillo are authors of children's literature whose work has multigenerational appeal. Lemony Snicket has enchanted readers with his comically morose A Series of Unfortunate Events, now in a box set of 13 books called The Complete Wreck. DiCamillo is a two-time Newberry Medal winner, whose books include Because of Winn-Dixie, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, and the Christmas tale just released, Great Joy. They share stories about the inspirations for their books before an audience at the 2006 DNA Children's Literature Festival in Kansas City.
