To celebrate Beverly Cleary's birthday on April 12, the Hollywood Library is hosting a variety of events, including:
-making Ramona-inspired costumes
-making noisemakers from recycled instruments
-walking Ramona and Beverly's neighborhood with Portland author Laura Foster
-and having a birthday party with cupcakes, balloons, and—that's right—nightcrawlers!
Coincidentally, April 12 is also D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) day, so you can easily prepare by checking out Beverly Cleary's memoir A Girl from Yamhill or Ramona Quimby, Age 8 for some further inspiration. To learn more about these upcoming events, visit the MCL Web site.
