In addition to her multitude of fans, Judy Blume has inspired a legion of writers throughout her decades-long career. Led by Meg Wolitzer (The Interestings), a team of talented authors and actors including Molly Ringwald (Riverdale), Samantha Bee (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee), Tavi Gevinson (Rookie), Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), Jenna Ushkowitz (Glee), Julie Klausner (Difficult People), Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show), Chloë Sevigny (American Horror Story), and protégés Tayari Jones and Rachel Vail gather to share stories and perform selections from the tantalizing, naughty, and hilarious grown-up works that solidified Blume as a unique talent and often controversial literary figure. With a rare NYC appearance by Judy Blume herself, this evening is for adults only!
