Judy Blume Children – Judy Blume Husband and Marriages

She married John M. Blume on August 15, 1959. She had met John while a student at New York University. They had two children: Randy, a therapist who was born in 1961 and Lawrence Andrew, a filmmaker born in 1963. The couple separated in 1975 and were divorced by 1976.

After her separation from John M. Blume, she met Thomas A. Kitchens, a physicist. The couple married in 1976, and they moved to New Mexico for Kitchens’ work. They divorced in 1978.

Finding herself at the center of an organized book banning campaign in the 1980’s she began to reach out to other writers, as well as teachers and librarians, who were under fire. Since then, she has worked tirelessly with the National Coalition Against Censorship to protect the freedom to read. She is the editor of Places I Never Meant To Be, Original Stories by Censored Writers.

Judy has completed a series of four chapter books — The Pain & the Great One — illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist James Stevenson. She has co-written and produced a film adaptation of her book Tiger Eyes, and her new adult novel, In the Unlikely Event, was released in June 2015.

Judy Blume Quotes

  1. My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully, and yell for help if you need it.
  2. Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.
  3. you can’t deny they ever happened. You can’t deny you ever loved them, love them still, even if loving them causes you pain
  4. [I]it’s not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is 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.
  5. That’s not a bad word…hate and war are bad words, but fuck isn’t.
  6. The truth will make you odd.
  7. Not everything has to have a point. Some things just are.
  8. The best books come from someplace deep inside… Become emotionally involved. If you don’t care about your characters, your readers won’t either.
  9. Snoring keeps the monsters away.
  10. some changes happen deep down inside of you. And the truth is, only you know about them. Maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
  11. You’ve never been in love, she said. You don’t understand.
  12. If being in love means giving up your freedom, not to mention your opportunities, Caitlin said, Then I haven’t missed anything.
  13. Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.
  14. Like my mother said, you can’t go back to holding hands
