a box of books written by
Beverly Cleary, who grew up

annual festival celebrating
the author, both girls were

prizes for writing essays.

during Beverly Cleary Day,
a Yamhill event honoring
the local author. Children
who attended were offered
dog-themed face paintings
to commemorate the soonto-
be-constructed dog park
named for Ribsy, one of
Cleary’s beloved characters.
