I read Margaret in 1977 when i was in 6th grade. I never really fit in with other boys, but I connected with the character in such a powerful way! (It wasnt just Margaret, but also Meg from A Wrinkle in Time and Princess Ozma, among others.)
Because of the time and place I grew up in, I struggled to know what to do with those feelings. It took me 43 years to admit to myself that I was a girl inside but in 2020 I finally could!
Last year when the movie adaptation of Margaret was released my wife and I went to see it and it brought back so many memories!
Thank you for allowing me to look at "the other side" and see myself there!

Hello!
I hope you are well. I reached out last year to inquire if you/Judy might be open to speaking at the Ruth's List conference. We are having another one in Miami on May 18th. We are fighting to take back Florida to protect reproductive rights, stop book bans, protect education-your causes. Might you consider it?
Warm regards, Felice Schulaner, Ruth's List FL.

Dearest Judy,
I finished your lessons on Masterclass. You made smile, laugh, and cry. Your transparency and passion was a blessing to witness. Thank you for your wisdom and wealth of knowledge on writing. I'm inspired. If I ever make it to Key West, I will visit the store. Enjoy the voices in your head and your infinite imagination! -Elizabeth

My class read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Otherwise Known as Shelia the Great.In my opinion Sheila was the best. Here are four reasons why Sheila is the best. One reason is that you want to know what is going to happen.I also like how when she's afraid to swim and get her face wet and how she is really scared of Jennifer Jennifer also had babies. Those are the reasons why Sheila the Great is the best.

My class read "Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing" and "Fudge a mania.My favorite out of the two is "Fudge a mania" because its more relatable because my brother may be older than me but he is still very rude like Fudge is to Peter.Their were a lot of funny things in this story like fudge being rude to peter sheila being the cootie Qween. lots of relatable things too. I think this book fudge a mania is a great book and lots of people should read it.

I can't believe I am writing to you. I am 54 years old and was not a reader when I was young. I did read forever in junior high just because everyone was whispering about it. I watched your documentary and got hooked. I read Are you there God just last weekend. I am buying all your books that I can find. I finally found a copy of Wifey on Amazon. Just inside the cover is written in red marker " For mother K- with love, Judy. Dec/1978" I was wondering if you possibly wrote that or sometime else. I can't wait to start reading it also. I wish I had been a reader when I was young because I have definitely enjoyed what I have read and am looking forward to getting the rest read. ❤️

We read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Fudge A Mania.I really do like both.But I would say fudge A Mania is my favorite.One reason is because Peter finds out that Sheila is right next to him.A third reason is when Fudge is getting married to Sheila. Peter thinks that its a bad idea.These are the reasons why Fudge a Mania is my favorite.

My class read "Tales of a Fourth grade nothing and "Fudge-a-mania.My favorite was Fudge-a-Mania.One reason why it is my favorite is because trying to see Sheila and Peter spend three weeks together.Another reason why it is my favorite is because the ending was really surprising and good.Plus another reason why it is my favorite is because of all the funny things Fudge does.The last reason why is when Jimmy Fargo comes.This is why Fudge-a-maniais my favorite Judy Blume book.

Dear Mrs. Judy Blume,
My name is Emma, I am in 4th grade and live in Cardiff by the Sea, California. I just finished your book "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret"
I love it and highly recommend it to all of my friends. My favorite parts about the book are when Margaret first moves to New Jersey and meets Nancy. I love how they made the friend group PTS. I also love what Margaret Loves, the smell of rain, tuna fist, and long hair.
I am sending this letter to you for a school book report project. I chose writing a letter because I thought it would be cool to write to you. I have never written a letter to an author before but it is very fun.
I have one question for you about the book, why did Margaret and her family not have a pet?
I hope you get this letter.
Sincerely,
Emma

Hi Judy,
Growing up, I loved to read your books. In elementary school, when I had to do a biography project, I chose YOU and even dressed up like you (I still have a picture of me on my school stage dressed us as Judy Blume). Now I have a daughter in 3rd grade. We just started reading “Otherwise known as Sheila the Great” before bed. She reads a page and then I read a page. Believe it or not, we’re actually reading my copy of your book (I kept all of my books written by you because they were my FAVORITE!). Last week, she had to pick someone to do a biography project on and she chose YOU! Thank you for creating timeless classics that girls, young and old, can forever relate to! I am so happy to be sharing these moments with my daughter, thanks to you! Is there any way we can get an autographed book or photo that she can use for her biography project? Thank you!

Dear Judy,
I never write to famous people but I just finished your masterclass videos. Thank you so much for just being you. I read fudge when i was in the 3rd grade. That and fudgemania were my 2 favorite books! I remember laughing so hard when I read them...and i read them over and over. Ive read most of your books and now im working on one of my own. Please wish me luck. You are an inspiration! And you are just an awesome person. When i was 20 at a business lunch someone asked me who my favorite author was. It was you.
Love

My name is Inez I’m in the fifth grade and I love your books I especially love are you there god it’s Margret.
I have one question to ask and would be so grateful if you could respond (if you want to).
When writing as an adult how can you make your books so realistic through young eyes?
Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. I hope you have an amazing day!

Yours truly

I wanted to know what if today, Kath friended Michael on Facebook as a grown woman of 66, after not seeing him for all those years, what would the interaction be like? I just read Forever for the second time…I’ve read all your books! You’re my favorite author. Thank you 😊
