Judy Blume, April 19, 7:00 p.m.
Beloved author Judy Blume is known for candid, relevant writing that appeals to children, tweens, and teens. She paved the way for today's young adult authors that fight to write about what matters to kids.
If you live in the area, make plans to attend these and/or the other Arts & Letters Live programs. The events I have attended through these series are some of the most memorable author presentations I've ever heard.
Also, be sure to mark your calendars for June 9, 2012 the date of the 2nd annual BooksmART Festival. Last year's event was a smashing success, so you won't want to miss this year's fest. Details will be announced in April.
