Children’s author Beverly Cleary died a few weeks back at the age of 104. New York Times bestselling author Renée Watson says the Ramona Quimby stories empowered her as a girl and still empowers readers today. It also inspired Watson's series for young readers about 8-year-old Ryan Hart. The second book in that series is called “Ways to Grow Love” and comes out in a few weeks. (AP Photo/Anthony McCartney)
