Minnesota's award-winning childrens author Kate DiCamillo talks about why she writes and how she does it --and takes questions from kids-- at a recent Club Book event in Apple Valley. DiCamillo is the author of the wildly popular "Because of Winn-Dixie" and "The Tale of Despereaux."

Club Book is a Twin Cities-area program that brings popular authors to communities around the metro area. It is coordinated by the Library Foundation of Hennepin County.
