  2. 2. The Life of Judy Blume <ul><li>Judy Blume grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey </li></ul><ul><li>She was born February 12, 1938 </li></ul><ul><li>She loved school growing up </li></ul><ul><li>She is a long time supporter of intellectual freedom </li></ul><ul><li>She has won many awards </li></ul><ul><li>She is the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund. </li></ul><ul><li>She and her husband (George Cooper) live on the east coast </li></ul><ul><li>Her favorite color is purple </li></ul>
  3. 3. -Plot- <ul><li>This book really focuses on growing up and how hard it is to find your self when you are in middle school and so many changes are going on. Moving to a new town, having no religion, and starting puberty late is no fun, and to Margaret its real life, this book is something every teenage girl can relate to. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why was your book challenged? <ul><li>My book talks about sexuality and religion all throughout the book. </li></ul><ul><li>“ But its not just the books under fire now that worry me. It’s the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always young readers will be the real losers.” -Judy Blume </li></ul>
  5. 5. My reaction…….. <ul><li>This book sounds like a really good book. </li></ul><ul><li>I think it teaches girls about growing up. </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t really understand why somebody would want to challenge a book that helps more than it hurts. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Other books challenged-- <ul><li>Blubber </li></ul><ul><li>Then again, Maybe I won’t </li></ul><ul><li>Deenie </li></ul><ul><li>Forever </li></ul><ul><li>And much more!! </li></ul>
  7. 7. Email From Judy! <ul><li>Hi Kaylee, </li></ul><ul><li>Thanks for your message. Everything I have to say about censorship is on my website. I’ve edited a new book – Places I Never Meant to Be, Original Stories By Censored Writers. It includes an introduction in which I share my personal experiences with censorship and you can read it on my website. Each of the other contributors also tells of his/her experiences with book banning. Author royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the National Coalition Against Censorship. The best way to fight censorship is to take a stand, talk about it with students, teachers, friends, and family. Awareness is the first step. </li></ul><ul><li>Check out www.ncac.org for more info. Good luck with your paper </li></ul><ul><li>Love, </li></ul><ul><li>Judy </li></ul>
