For generations of readers, Judy Blume is an icon. Beginning in the late 1960s, her celebrated novels were formative for young readers and future writers alike.
Her children’s stories, including Fudge and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, are funny, irreverent and riotous precursors to the blockbuster kids’ series of today.
While her young adult books were beloved – and sometimes banned – for their free and frank depictions of puberty and sexuality. Join Judy (appearing live via video) as she talks with Sophie Black about her body of work, which exceeds some 85 million in sales, and on her life now happily running a bookstore on an island in Florida.
