A Girl from Yamhill by Beverly Cleary
A Girl from Yamhill

ktengberg, March 8, 2009

I was 9 years old living in Carmel, California when I met Beverly Cleary.
I worked in the library at my local elementary school and was delighted when our school librarian chose me to have lunch with Mrs. Cleary.
I had read and reread all of her books, but was especially fond of Ramona age 8. What a delightful lady she was. I remember we had lunch in Carmel at the Pine Inn, where guests and celebrities alike could take their dogs into the restaurant. It was one of the highlights of my life.
I am wondering if Mrs. Cleary is still alive. I think she would be almost 93?
I visit often here in Portland and think about her every time I pass over Klickatat Street. I also know of the park with the characters and the Beverly Cleary Center nearby.
