“And place is always and only place,” writes T.S. Eliot. Is that true? Or is place rather the sum of human experience at a location—“the meeting up of histories” as geographer Doreen Massey has suggested? Does place in literature matter? The truth, usually, is simply that we don’t know. When we read a place name in a text, when we learn that a writer worked at a certain address, we read on—because how much do we know of all these places?

Beverly Cleary, the well known children’s author The Library of Congress designated as a living legend, will be turning 100 on April 12th.
