Judy-Blume-Featured
Judy Blume Is the Best

Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of moderating our highly anticipated live chat with Judy Blume. I’ve mentioned what a huge fan I am a few times on this blog. When I got to speak to Ms. Blume on the phone the day before the chat…well, let’s just say I had to try very hard to maintain my professional demeanor and not dissolve into a puddle of You’re amazing I grew up with you thank you thank you thank you. (Although she may have heard that in my voice anyway.) It was wonderful to see that sentiment pouring out from a lot of you yesterday.

The chat last night was a rousing success thanks to all of you who participated. We had quite a few classrooms, some longtime fans, whole families, and even a few kids tune in. Judy had plenty to say about everything from the inspiration for her books to advice for burgeoning writers.

Don’t worry if you missed it! Check out the transcript below and it’ll be like you were there.

You can find the following Judy Blume titles in Book Clubs right now:

Freckle Juice and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing in Club Shop
The Fudge-a-Mania Pack (includes Superfudge, Fudge-a-Mania, and Double Fudge) in Arrow June
