*I had the priveldge of hearing Kate DiCamillo speak at the Stepping Stone Theater right here in St. Paul.
*I joined a few of my "NERDY" friends for some drinks and dinner. We then made our way to the theater.
*This event was presented by our local bookstore called The Red Balloon.
*Kate spent a bit of time reading from Because of Winn Dixie and her newest novel Louisiana's Way Home. It has been eighteen years since the release of Because of Winn Dixie.
*She also gave the members of the audience an opportunity to ask her questions. Maybe of the questions came from young readers and it was delightful to hear them speak and listen to what Kate had to say in return.
*Such a fun night and I can't wait to dive into her newest work of fiction. Everything she writes provides such a wonderful story.
