RIP Beverly Cleary

#1 Post by Vandal » Fri Mar 26, 2021 6:30 pm

Beloved Children’s book author Beverly Cleary died on March 25, 2021, in Carmel, California, where she’d lived since the 1960s. She was 104 years old.

With “Henry Huggins,” published in 1950, Ms. Cleary, a librarian by trade, introduced a contemporary note into children’s literature. In a humorous, lively style, she made compelling drama out of the everyday problems, small injustices and perplexing mysteries — adults chief among them — that define middle-class American childhood.

Since our local library shelves all children's books alphabetically, I'm honored to be shelved just before the Beverly Cleary collection.
