Quote: "Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won't have as much censorship because we won't have as much fear."
— Judy Blume
Happy birthday to author Judy Blume, who turns 70 today. Blume has written more than 25 books, which have been translated into 31 languages and have sold a total of some 80 million copies. Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret and Forever are among the novels that Blume has written, which have found their way to censorship lists in schools and libraries across America. Blume's place among the most censored artists has made her active in organizations that work to ensure free speech. She has edited a collection of short stories about censorship, called Places I Never Meant to Be.
