If you have a child, are a child, were a child, are still clinging to your inner child, chances are you have heard of or read the supremely popular children’s book author Judy Blume. The writer of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret will be at the Toronto Reference Library on June 29. Already, the free event is sold out. I guess I will be seeing Judy Blume by the rush seats/waitlist route. When a hugely successful writer of her calibre is in town, you go hear what she has to say. The library’s website says:
The recipient of over 90 literary awards and three lifetime achievement awards presents her first adult novel in 15 years, In the Unlikely Event.
I’ll have your ticket to see Judy Blume if you’re having a change of heart about going.
