I recently returned from a vacation, where I stumbled upon the fact that Judy Bloom is volunteering in a bookstore in Key West, Florida called Books & Books. She was instrumental in the set up of the store and routinely comes in to help out with her husband. I made my family stand outside to wait for the opening in hopes to see her, talk to her, hug her and let her know what an impact she had on my youth as an author. Alas, she did not come in that day (yes, I went back later on), but my daughter, curiously scanned all of the Judy Bloom books and selected a few that Judy will sign and mail to her before leaving Key West. I too grabbed her latest adult novel and can’t wait to follow her magic into my adult life. Thank you to Judy and all others creating the magic for tweens, teens and adults alike!
