Marinette: Adults Read Judy Blume

Did you read Judy Blume’s books when you were a child or teenager? For this book discussion lead by Librarian Mariel, please (re)read some of her books for youth and teens, including Blubber, Iggie’s House, Forever, and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Among other topics, we will talk about how these books impacted our youth and what impact (if any) they have on us as adults.
