Judy says: Thank you, thank you for all your wonderful notes. I only wish I could write back to each of you personally. But in order to start a new book I need serious thinking time, which means less time for e-mail. Hope you understand.
Just want you to know that my assistant and I read this guestbook every day, and try to respond when appropriate. Your continued love and support are a constant inspiration.

I wanted to send a shout out Ms Blume for your book Deenie. I was 13 years old and read this book with enthusiasm and learned so much ! Specifically about scoliosis. Unbeknownst to me I myself had it . I too was a curvy girl !! After reading this extraordinary book I talked to my mother who looked carefully at my back and realized that something wasn’t right. We visited our GP and then went to Sick children’s hospital where I had surgery and rods put along my spine . A 10 hour procedure, 6 months in a body cast and 3 months with a body brace. All as a budding teen . I would like to thank you Judy for this book and leading me to a life changing procedure. I am forever grateful for the information you wrote. I am now 60 years old and forever have the memory of reading , learning and discovering through the visions you imagined .
If at all possible could I have an autographed copy of Deenie? It would mean so much to me .

Forever Grateful : Laurie Antonio

I wanted to tell you how you came into my life. In 1977, my family experienced a tragedy. My brother who was 12 had a major heart attack and died. I was 11, and it was my birthday. I have a vivid memory of that day. A friend’s mother came to pay her respects. She handed me a gift bag. It contained several of your books including “Are You There God It’s Me Margaret?” I couldn’t put it down! Fast forward to now.. I am a second grade teacher and have been teaching for 33 years. I read your books every day to my students. In fact, you could hear s pin drop when I do! They especially love Fudgie! I read his part in a funny voice and they can’t get enough of it! When your books came to our Scholastic Book Fair, they raced to buy them all! So…. I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You instilled a love for reading when my world was so very dark. I am so excited to see this wonderful book become a movie. It opens on my dad’s birthday. He passed several years ago so that date makes it all the more special. I don’t know if you will actually see this but you helped me during an unthinkable moment. Your books let me escape from the harsh reality that I was in at the time. Thank you doesn’t seem like enough to tell you how I feel about you and your work. Sincerely, Susan Mattucci

Dear Judy,
I have thought about writing to you for many years. Your books have helped millions of kids not only fall in love with reading but navigate this crazy world we live in.

For me Judy Blume means so much more. 1969-1970’s ish Shackamaxon Country Club Scotch Plains New Jersey ! You Judy Blume were the first women I ever met that had a career I may have been 12 when I had my first conversation with you at the pool ! You changed everything for me that first day. I can be and do anything I want. I knew I didn’t want my Mother’s role (a stay at home Mom)
My parents Joan and Mickey Pine were wonderful parents, and they supported me throughout. Whether you remember my parents or not
Is unimportant I just wanted you to know your influence goes beyond your written words and the impact you have made on so many sometimes goes unrecognized. Sincerely, Jeryl Pine. (Now my 13 year old granddaughter is a Judy Blume fan ) Amazing !

When my daughter was young, I bought her the book “Are you there God? it’s me Margaret. She read it over and over. Now she has a daughter (5 months old) and I would like to give her the same book. Is there a way I can purchase a signed book for my new granddaughter? My daughter is a 6th grade teacher in an Appalachian school and deals with some of the same issues with her students and she references your book. Thank you for writing such a wonderful book.

I watched the trailer for “Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret” this morning. I cried. I remember reading it in the 70s and how important it was to me at that time. I’m coming upon my 60th birthday, reminiscing about my life… I wonder, what would Margaret be praying at this point? …after a big part of that life has been lived, kids have grown and new things on the horizon?
Most of all, thank you for writing it. I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.
🙏❤️

Hi Judy, It's been a great time getting to know you as Im doing you for a baby boomer history influencer project. Im a 13-year-old journalist and was interested in getting to know you since you are an American writer. I really hope you receive this as well as you have a great time writing your new book. Can't wait and am currently working with my school to get your books in our library. Would love to get in contact to share my work and so I can tell my class I got to talk to you. 🙂
Fourth Grade Reading Class from Columbus wrote on January 11, 2023
Dear Mrs. Blume,
We really enjoyed reading Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing. Our favorite character is Fudge. We really like the time when Fudge said "Eat it or wear it." Another chapter we liked was when Fudge tried to fly and lost his teeth. The class was impressed that there is a person pressing buttons in the elevator. It was funny how Peter had to show Fudge how to ride the Toddle Bike. Lastly, we felt very sorry for Peter when Fudge ate Dribble, poor Dribble. Are you writing any books right now? Do you have another Pet besides Mookie. We can't wait to see your next book.

Judy, since "In the Unlikely Event" is historical fiction, I was taken aback when on page 305 you wrote about the production of "Peter Pan" and credited Leonard Bernstein as the guy who wrote both the lyrics and music. I found this jarring because in the 1955 stage musical version, my cousin, Carolyn Leigh, probably best known for "Young at Heart," and "The Best is Yet to Come" wrote the lyrics. I had no idea that Leonard Berstein had ever written a version of this play. All that aside, I am very much enjoying your book, despite still not being able to remember who all of the characters are. Such an interesting idea to wrap a story around such an interesting event.

Hello Ms. Blume! As the school year progresses, we will soon be celebrating our 100th day. In honor of this event, I am hoping to receive 100 pieces of mail from all over! Every piece of mail that comes to our class will be read, numbered and hung up on our hallway bulletin board. The students love getting mail!! They love participating in our United States postcard exchange program and being pen pals with our fourth grade buddy class in Philadelphia. We talk about where each letter and postcard comes from and learn fun facts about the place.

It would be wonderful if we can receive mail from our favorite author! Please send us a little note, postcard or picture to wish us a happy 100th day to the address below. My students are huge fans and would be so starstruck to receive mail from them! Thanks so much!!♥️♥️

Good morning
Judy I have been a fan since my 6th grade teacher read Are you there god it’s me Margaret in 1977.I found a copy of the book in a pile of used books at a library that was doing a used book sale.I bought it and I recently went thru a box of books that I was sorting out. I read it again I am now 56 years old books like yours are a treasure. Thank God there are writers like you.

Keeping my fingers crossed!
Andrea S from Knoxville, TN wrote on January 4, 2023
Hi, Judy,

My name is Andrea, and I’m a 20 year old with a love for estate sale shopping. Despite my love for any items that I can get my hands on from past decades, I’ve admittedly been sucked further into modernity than I like. With online assignments and time wasted on social media, I’ve been feeling my passion for books slipping away since middle school. This transition from absorbing something physical, like a fantastic book, to letting time waste on ten second clips and celebrity stories that won’t matter in five minutes is something that has broken and continues to break my heart. Because of this, I decided to start reading again, not for school, not because of a breaking news story, and certainly not because of an Instagram caption, but for myself…something that I haven’t done in years - literally. While rummaging through tables of items at an estate sale, I ran into one of your books, 𝘚𝘮𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘞𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘯. After broken up moments of peace every few days during which I was able to become part of the world of BB, Margo, Clare, and everyone else, I made headway on your book. I just finished it last night. It was fantastic. Now I have dozens of books that I’m excited to read. I haven’t felt this way since I was 15. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping me open up to reading for myself again.
