Kate DiCamillo — writer of children’s favorites “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “The Tale of Despereaux” — will be on Long Island tomorrow  to read and sign copies of her newest book for early readers, “Bink and Gollie: Two for One,” co-written with Alison McGhee.

DiCamillo is scheduled to appear at 2 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers at the Country Glen Center, 91 Old Country Rd. in Carle Place. Wristbands will be distributed starting at noon today.

“Bink and Gollie: Two for One” (Candlewick Press, $15.99) is a sequel to the first Bink and Gollie book. In this one, the state fair is in town, and Bink and Gollie try to win the world’s largest doughnut and visit fortune teller Madame Prunely.
