Judy Blume: Censoring Puberty
Today is the beginning of Banned Books Week, when libraries and individuals celebrate intellectual freedom and draw attention to banned books/book challenges. I’ll be posting more throughout the week, but I thought we would get the ball rolling with some words from Judy Blume. A force to be reckoned with, both for her decades of classics and her dedication to fighting censorship, Judy Blume’s work has touched countless lives and influenced other writers and creators who have gone on to touch more lives and get banned themselves. So I tip my hat to her today. Thank you, Judy, for all that you’ve done and all that you continue to do.
