"She changed my life."

That's a common sentiment being expressed by people reacting to the news that Beverly Cleary died Thursday at 104. The beloved children's book author entertained and enlightened generations of children – and showed them that they could make their own way, be their own person, with endless possibilities.

I'm incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Beverly Cleary—Oregon's beloved children's author. She wrote dozens of titles, received numerous prestigious awards, and sparked a love of reading for generations of children. She will be deeply missed.
