Celebrating Judy Blume's Amazing Career Through the Years
Judy Blume has dared to address the taboos of puberty and nascent sexuality for more than four decades, and she has been a funny and knowing voice for children and adolescents—particularly for girls and young women—doing so.
Despite her prolific career with more than 80 million copies sold in 31 languages, June 6 marks the first time that the best-selling author will see one of her books get the silver screen treatment in theaters! Tiger Eyes, which she originally wrote in 1981, was adapted to the screen in a joint effort with her son, Larry, who also directed.
As Blume continues to make incredible strides in her iconic career, she remains a wonderful role model to any woman who has ever had a little pent up creativity and a whole lot of ambition.
To celebrate her latest feat, MAKERS walks through Judy Blume's career milestones in the gallery above. See where it all began and how she got to where she is today.
