Happy birthday, Beverly Cleary; Scott Turow.

Oregon native and Newbury Medal winner Beverly Cleary, who created Klickitat Street's beloved Beezus Quimby, Ramona Quimby, and Henry Huggins in books such as Henry Huggins (1950), Henry and Ribsy (1954), and Beezus and Ramona (1955), turns 92 today.

And legal eagle Scott Turow was born today in Chicago in 1949. In addition to his thrillers, he is the author of an insightful look at the first year of law school, One L, which also discusses one of his professors--Alan Dershowitz.
