Judy Blume at the Printers Row Lit Fest

Judy Blume received the 2013 Chicago Tribune Young Adult Literary Prize three hours ago. Are you sitting down? The full event is already on YouTube. I know what I'm watching tonight after the Tony Awards...


Congratulations, Judy Blume! Meeting you yesterday was a magical moment that I'll never forget. The eight-year-old me spent countless hours reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to imaginary students. I never imagined that one day I would meet the writer of those words. Thank you!
