Beverly Cleary, the well known children’s author The Library of Congress designated as a living legend, will be turning 100 on April 12th. In previous years “Drop Everything and Read” programs have been held in libraries nationwide on April 12th in honor of Mrs. Cleary’s birthday, but why just celebrate her for a day? Instead, Cubberley has put up a display of books for the whole month honoring both Ms. Cleary as well as the spirit of Drop Everything and Read.
