Judy Blume reached into the souls of kids and young adults everywhere with books such as Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, even if her frank, honest work caused its share of controversy. Now pull up a chair and learn more about the award-winning author through her fans, her legacy, and her own words. —M.G.

When pre-teens read the pages of classic novels such as Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret., the Fudge series, and Forever, a refreshingly honest voice emerges, one they rarely hear elsewhere. Award-winning author, Judy Blume, had a remarkable way of connecting with young readers, crafting relatable coming-of-age stories while normalizing topics like puberty, menstruation, and sexuality. Now thriving in her 80s, Blume candidly shares her life story in JUDY BLUME FOREVER with the help of fellow authors, publishers, and long-time pen pals whose lives have been radically transformed by her legacy. In her charming, effortless way, Blume speaks to the frustrating challenges of book bans and censorship, and her winding path to fearlessness through her revolutionary writing. —A.B.

This film is presented in loving memory of CAROL A. MARCH.
