Happy Birthday Beverly Cleary!


Beverly Cleary turns 100 on 4/7/2016.  I probably read 75% of her books when I was younger. I was absolutely mesmerized by Ramona and the neighborhood she lived in. I lived for a little while on Klickitat St. in Portland in my early 20s and used to take lots of walks to the grade school around the corner: the one that Ramona fictitiously attended throughout her childhood.

It’s great to hear that Cleary is still around, exuding her spark of life.
