are you there hartford? it’s judy blume

From “Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing” to “Starring Sally J. Friedman As Herself” to “Forever” to “Wifey”, there is no one like Judy Blume for “getting” the way kids and young adults (and adults!) really feel. The best-selling, award-winning author will be speaking at the University of Hartford on June 21 as a fundraiser for the Mark Twain House & Museum. She’ll be answering audience questions, signing books, and discussing her stories, writing habits, and her fight against censorship. The uber-talented Julia Pistell of Syllable Series and Literary Disco will be the host. Tickets are $25, $40, and if you’d like an up-close-and-personal experience with Judy, you can get premium seats and a pre-event reception with her for $85.
