Beverly ClearyIn this OE Literary History Night, Eric A. Kimmel and Sybilla Cook will focus on the life of children’s author Beverly Cleary. A related slide show will present the places important in her life and in her books. The thrill for Portlanders is realizing that these famous books are not based on a generic town. They are set in a real place – Portland, Oregon! If you know the neighborhood, it is not hard to spot where the episodes in the stories took place.
