Judy Blume: Still Our Voice

When I heard that "Tiger Eyes" was being turned into a movie, I quickly turned to my friend circle to spread the news. Like any member of the Facebook tribe, I put a call out for Judy Blume fans—I figured if I was lucky, I could get someone to see Tiger Eyes with me when it comes out in June. I figured if I was really lucky, I could get someone to write a blog post for Jewish American Heritage Month about how Judy Blume affected their childhood.

What I saw was not a trickling of responses, but a giant flash flood of self-professed Judy Blume fans. The response came not just from women but men as well. Judy Blume remains part of our voice, part of our narrative. Those professing their love ranged from early 20s to those in their early 40s. Judy Blume opened our eyes—and continues to do so.
