Beverly Cleary Themed Walking Guidebook Featured on Kickstarter

By Maryann Yin Comment

Microcosm Publishing has raised more than $6,000 for Walking with Ramona: Exploring Beverly Cleary’s Portland by Laura O. Foster. We’ve embedded a video about this “walking (or biking) guidebook” above.

Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “Walking with Ramona unlocks a fascinating chapter of Portland’s history, and introduces you to the sights, sounds, smells, games, and social fabric of mid-century Portland. Like the Ramona books themselves, this tour and the history around it can be enjoyed by all ages and generations.”
