Are you there Sydney? It's me Judy Blume

While her young adult books were beloved – and sometimes banned – for their free and frank depictions of puberty and sexuality. Join Judy (appearing live via video) as she talks with Sophie Black about her body of work, which exceeds some 85 million in sales, and on her life now happily running a bookstore on an island in Florida.
