Happy Birthday, Judy Blume!


It’s a major holiday today: Judy Blume’s birthday!

This story is a rehash, but it’s one of my favorites.  I even did it for The Moth, and what was great was that young girls came up to me after the show and said, “I love Judy Blume, too!” and we all talked out our favorite Judy Blume moments.  Those bonds run deep.

So this is my old post about meeting her, because it was a Big Deal.  Happy Birthday, Judy Blume!  Countless girls are so glad you were born — and explained how all that worked.
