Oregon Encyclopedia History Night

PENELOPE BASS
7 pm, Monday July 07 | Free
Mission Theater and Pub

If you were a child at any time during the last several decades, odds are you read at least one (if not all) of the Beverly Cleary books. And if you didn't realize it at the time, the beloved characters from her numerous novels like Henry Higgins and Beezus and Ramona Quimby all reside not in a fictional town but right here in Portland, inspired by Cleary's own childhood. Oregon children’s book author Eric A. Kimmel and Sybilla Cook, author of Walking Portland, will team up for the History Night presentation "Beverly Cleary's Neighborhood," complete with photographs of the places important in her life and career.

Where: Mission Theater and Pub
