You got me through all the rough times, and grade school specifically you made all the normal things feel normal and all the scary things also feel normal becuase your books were open and so REAL. I thank you for that, I now am still enjoying your books as a young adult and still find your style of writing to be the most enjoyable. THANK YOU Judy blume for being amazing! I watched and loved Tiger eyes so much, I hope all your books become movies one day

Hi Judy,
Thank you so much for sharing such great stories and creating such relatable stories over the course of so many years. As an aspiring author I can only hope to be an ounce as successful as you have become. Not in becoming well known, but being able to reach so many kids, teens and adults world wide and share a perspective on the challenges of growing up and dealing with every day issues. You are a really great author and a lovely person, never stop writing and being an inspiration! Sincerely, Grace

Hi Judy,

Hi! My name is Shea. I read almost all of the Fudge Books and I love them! I think Fudge is really funny. So is Uncle Feather! What gave you the idea of Uncle Feather? I also really liked how Fudge rode all the way to the bakery in SuperFudge? I would have gotten some chocolate chip cookies and so would my Dad. I really liked the idea of code names in DoubleFudge. My code name is Aehs Paula. Me and my dad take turns reading each page. Thank you for writing your books.

I grew up reading your books in grade school and junior high. I remember reading, "Freckle Juice" and the one I read over and over again was, "Forever". As I was a young teen trying to make sense of what love could be apart from my dysfunctional family life.

Dear Ms. Judy Blum,
I personally love your work. The first book I read of yours was: Are you there God, it's me Margaret that I read in grade.5 and then Blubber. I read Otherwise none as Shelia the Great and actually did a report on it for my grade.5 class. After that I read Iggy's house and I just finished It's not the end of the World, and that's what I wanted to talk about. I loved the story, you really had me going, in till the end. What happened!!!!!! Like what happens to them. Where do they move, do they even move, like Debbie gave her some photos, they had KFC, where heading to a movie and you ended it at a joke Amy said. I didn't like it at, ALL!!!!!
You do not have to responded, I just wanted to let you know

Dear Judy,
This summer I had a book report and we got to chose two books.One of the books I chose was Are You There God,It's Me Margret. I loved It I could relate to a lot of what she was saying.I am now a very big fan of your books.I also liked the characters especially Margaret and her grandma because,she would do anything for Margaret like when she traveled a long time just to make sure Margaret and her family were okay in they're new house.
I also thought Margret's experiences with the different religions she tried was very entertaining. Are the other girls like Nancy based off of your friends or someone you know and is Margaret based off of you?Was there anything looking back you would change or add to your book?What was your favorite book you have written?My mom read this book when she was my age that is amazing that my mom read the same book when she was my age and it was still interesting to me

Where do you get the ideas for your stories? How did you decided to be an author? How are you doing? How are your children,your pets and your husband? If you have time please write back.
Sincerely,
Sophia

I want to thank you for your books. I grew up reading your books. My favorite was, Just As Long As We're Together. I've read it over ten times! I'm almost 30 and I'm currently reading Summer Sisters, which I've also read numerous times. Thank you for making your books so honest and relatable. Your books are compulsively readable and give me a sense of comfort. Thank you!

Merci, merci, merci d'écrire si bien et de retranscrire si justement ces moments d'enfance. Bel été à vous.

I just read a quote about books you have outgrown but they still hold a place on your bookshelf because they hold your youth.....Just As Long As We're Together is my 'youth' book still on my bookshelf at age 34. It was THE book that I could turn to in 5th grade when the 'friends' were caddy and cruel, when no one was there to turn to, Stephanie, Rachel and Allison were my best friends. Thank you for creating a wonderful story that played a big part of providing comfort during a very hard year.

Hello!

My name is Linda Smith, Programming Specialist for the St. Louis Public Library. I read in the Printers Row e-publication that Judy Blume is releasing an adult book in 2015 which will be her first book in over 10 years! We would love to be included in her book tour!

The Schlafly Branch Library, located in the eclectic neighborhood of St. Louis’ Central West End would be a perfect venue for her as it holds up to 125 people and is open until 9 p.m. in the evening.

We usually partner with Left Bank Books (www.left-bank.com) for book sales. The event would be promoted through our web site and monthly events calendar that reaches 85,000+ households and businesses. We would send press releases to all the local newspapers and media outlets. Left Bank also promotes heavily through their website, newsletter, and e-blasts as well.

I can be reached at 314.880.8759 and lsmith@slpl.org for your convenience.

Thank you for your consideration!

Hi mrs, judy , on the first hand sorry if there's any mistake or error on thi letter. my writing is not hte best one ,yet. i am from Venezuela and have the luck to find your book "Forever" in the desk i was studying in. I'm not the kind of person to whom to you see reading in a room full of people and plenty of food but i would rather say that your book has helped me in more ways than i could tell, not in a phycological or like if it was a guide for me at all, although , this book has helped me being able to go through a really hard time in my life, my last and weirdest relationship i had was just a mess and she just ended up breaking up with me becaouse of God. It seems that God told her or made her feel that our relationship wasn't going on the right or the best way and well. . . . pretty much after all, i hope and think that if God is in between anything can possibly go grong , it's up to us if we ended up all messed up or worst, i guess.

This is my life so far until now. I finished your book about a half an hour and i ws wondering if you could helped me with this. the book ended in Theo calling Kath ..... what an amazing way to finish a book tho. is there a sequel of this book, and if there's not, would you mind telling me what or how Kath ended? what happened to michael? and did artie made it to the drama collage or he killed himself?


from a humble new fan, my best wishes for you and i hope to hear soon from you. good luck on the comming book.

truely yous,
Brando R.

Dear Judy,
I am a life long fan and I wanted to say thank you. You, your kindness, and your amazing books helped make my life better. When I was young I discovered your books and I read them all. They helped me find my way in life, they were like friends. One day I decided to write you a thank you note. I was so excited and honored when you wrote me back. Your gentle, kind, and loving words helped me make it through a very lonely and painful time in my life. To me you were always my friend Judy. My way of thanking you over the years was to give your books as presents. I always wanted others to discover you gifts. Once I saw a photo of you with pictures from all your fans. I was dumbstruck to see my face among them. Thank you Ms. Blume for the love, gentleness, kindness, and respect that you gave me and all of your kids over the decades. It is not overstating that you helped to save my life. You are a mensch and were a mechayeh [a joy, you brought me relief]. Thank you. with Love & Admiration

I'm raising my kids better because of you.I read "Are you there...' when I was 12. It effectively countered all the years of Playboy my dad had stashed away. Suddenly, girls had feelings, fears, vulnerability, strength, resolve, regret; all things I could relate too. So thanks from me, and thanks from my 21 yr old daughter who has taken these realizations to knew heights, both inexplicable to me, and exactly what I wanted for her.

Hey Judy,
I've been researching censorship and book banning in schools for an assignment (single mom who recently went back to school). I have always been an avid reader and have many of your books in my personal "library." My daughter, 7, has currently caught the reading bug. She's diving into the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and yours will be on the list of my recommendations to her as she becomes a more confident reader. I just want to say I was amazed at how active you are in regards to censorship. What I find disconcerting is that so much negativity is coming from "religious zealots" as I've seen it put quite a few times by several people. Personally, I am a Christian and I am teaching my daughter about God, but I do not believe any books should be kept out of libraries or schools. I want her to ask me about hard subjects. I want her to form her own thoughts and opinions and I am encouraging her to have an opinion that doesn't always match mine. As she's so young, I know she wants to make me happy. Her instinct is that I will be upset because she may disagree about something (even if it's about how cute a boy is). I make sure to let her know I enjoy her different opinion and that if she was just a copy of me, our lives would be incredibly boring! Why am I sharing this with you? Well, just to let you know there are Christians out there who do not want to keep "uncomfortable" subjects out of school and believe that reading for children is vital, even if it's Harry Potter (which, I enjoyed and I know my daughter will love when she starts them). I am so glad that my professor has us researching censorship. This will definitely keep me active at my local school board to ensure there's at a voice in this corner of the world to protect authors and books. Thank you for all you've done!

Hi Judy,
I can't believe so much time has flown since I read your books as a young teenager....they were such a huge part of my childhood, you will always be so special in my heart. I happened to see one of your book covers on Pinterest the other day, the exact same version of Forever that I used to own, and it brought back so many memories. Strangely, the man who currently has my heart but whose I do not have back is called Michael too So many memories, I loved all of your books. I am going to order them again I think and re-read them all as a grown up Mum of 2!

I hope you are well Judy, and that life is treating you well.

Kindest regards always,

Angela

PS. My eldest son was doing a school project on authors and had to write to his favourite (Julia Donaldson). He was so happy when she wrote back! I told him the story of when I wrote to you and you also wrote back, I will never forget that Thank you xxxx
