Monday, April 13th (as far as I can tell so far) is Drop Everything And Read day. (From the Beverly Cleary Ramona books.) I am searching for local activities and haven't found any so far. There are probably things happening in schools -- but so far nothings else.

If you know of something, drop me a note!

There is a link to a fellow writer's workplace's schedule for Monday to celebrate the day Open Books DEAR day.

  2. Thank you for the link to the wonderful article about Beverly Cleary! I did find that article last night, but I didn't see any public events listed for the Portland area. I'll check again (sometimes I shouldn't be trying to find something in the middle of the night!).
