Happy Birthday, Judy Blume

I can’t stay long, but I didn’t want to let this day pass without mentioning that today is YA author Judy Blume’s seventy-first birthday (if my math doesn’t fail me!). In addition to being the mother of young adult literature as we know it, she’s also a champion of free speech. This is one cool septenarian!

(I wrote a bit more coherently about her significance to generations of girls here.)
