Judy Blume writes that she found her first favorite books while sitting on the floor of the children’s room at the public library in Elizabeth, New Jersey. She grew up with her own characters and stories running around inside her head. Today her characters live in twenty-eight books in thirty-two languages. 

Blume is a longtime advocate of intellectual freedom. She has worked closely with the National Coalition Against Censorship as well as the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom to protect the freedom to read.

She is proud to be a recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement from the American Library Association. Most recently she was co-writer/producer of a film adaptation of her novel “Tiger Eyes.” Currently she is writing a new novel.
