When Julie Christopher from HarperCollins Children’s Books contacted me to videotape an interview with Beverly Cleary I was thrilled. After all, she was my favorite author as a child. Now 35 years later her work is on the NEA’s Top 100 favorite Children’s Books for Teachers and Children.
Her editor Barbara Lalicki conducted the interview in Ms. Cleary’s Carmel home. April 12, 2006 her 90th birthday is Drop Everything and Read Day or DEAR. We hope everyone does just that!
