People, super serious question: what ever would we do without Judy Blume?
Judy’s books helped many of us navigate the troubled seas of adulthood (you former young ladies of the world know what I’m talking about). They entertained us, emboldened us, held our hands and assured us we were not alone. And her brave and tireless advocacy on behalf of the freedom to read has marked her out as one of the guiding lights of the free speech world.
So today we celebrate Judy’s Birthday, basically a literary national holiday.
Thank you, Judy for all you have done and all you continue to do! A million happy returns.
On that note, shall we end on a song?
