Host Bethany Grabow talks with Laura O. Foster, author of the new book Walking with Ramona: Exploring Beverly Cleary’s Portland. Part walking tour, part history lesson, this guidebook is a unique look at life when author Beverly Cleary was a young girl in the 1920s and the city’s transformation in the years since.

Tune in to learn about Foster’s process for researching and developing local walking tours, in which, according to The Oregonian, she: "Skillfully combines neighborhood history and architectural description with keen observations guaranteed to capture a walker’s imagination."
