Alison Greenspan and UPenn and Ramona and Beezus
Today, film producer Alison Greenspan (C'94, Bloomers) debuts her film Ramona and Beezus to the world.

And it's quite a story on how Alison was able to convince the 94 year old popular childhood author Beverly Cleary to approve.

More after the jump!



Per an article in "The Globe and the Mail",
“I know that Hollywood producers have a reputation for being somewhat slimy, so I got out my childhood book reports to prove to [Cleary] that actually I was a fan for life, basically, and was going to take the utmost care with her books,” Greenspan says from France.

The plan worked.

“She zeroed in that I got an A- for spelling errors. That was very Ramona,” she says with a laugh (Ramona is regularly scolded for her unorthodox spelling in the book series).
