When Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo (The Tale of Despereaux) was 26 years old and dreaming of becoming a writer, she picked up Judith Thurman's book Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller and read it for the first time. It was a transformative experience. We invited Kate and Judith to come together in our virtual space for a conversation about this extraordinary work that won the 1983 National Book Award for Nonfiction and served as the basis for the Oscar-winning film Out of Africa.
