Happy Birthday Beverly Cleary
On April 12, 2016, Beverly Cleary reached her hundredth birthday. Someone mentioned that she also has reached 100 million books sold worldwide as well!
Former Worcester GS leader and fantastic botanist Judith (whose arm probably aches from my efforts to entice her to present at GE) made an exquisite custard pie, generously flavored with tangy nutmeg - yes, also inspired by a Cleary book episode. CLM, who blogs at Staircase Wit, brought warm meatballs in the fanciest crockpot insert I've ever seen!
Happy Birthday Beverly! Book fans everywhere rejoice! GE attendees, we'll soon announce this year's GE Book Club selection so watch this space.
