Some authors simply transcend time and one author who comes to mind is Judy Blume. She’s the author of multiple iconic series and masterminded books we’ve read and devoured. One of her novels is even being adapted this year.
Recently, the trailer for a documentary entitled Judy Blume Forever was released, and judging from that, it’s a love letter to the author. The documentary focuses on Judy’s life as a kid and her eventual rise to fame as a beloved author.
As evidenced by the trailer, the film also features some incredible authors, actresses, and celebrities of all kinds. Obviously, Judy is also a part of the documentary as we see in the clips featured amidst the trailer which will be featured below.
In honor of the trailer for Judy Blume Forever being released, it’s only right to pay homage to one of the literary queens of the 20th century.
The trailer for Judy Blume Forever proves how timeless she still is.
As you can see from the trailer, there is a lot more to Judy Blume than some of us might have imagined. I know that most people reading this have had the pleasure of reading at least one of her novels. In the clips, there are some current students who are picking up, reading, and loving her books.
If those clips weren’t enough to prove how timeless she is, I don’t know what else will but if you need some reasons, let’s just get into a few. Her books focus on issues and topics that kids and teens are still dealing with today. Whether it’s parents, siblings, periods, sex, or even, fighting with friends, there’s a Judy Blume book featuring those types of issues.
Additionally, Blume has written in a wide variety of age groups and genres. She’s written picture books, middle-grade stories, young adult stories, and even, a few adult titles. No matter what stage of life you’re in, there’s something of hers to pick up. Even if you aren’t in that age demographic, I feel like you can’t go wrong with what you pick.
In one of the clips from the trailer, Blume even stated: “I could be fearless in my writing in a way that maybe I wasn’t always in my life.” To me, that’s something incredibly relatable and something I’m sure a lot of my fellow readers discovered amongst her books. She wrote about topics some authors won’t even think about now and that’s pretty amazing to think about as those books were published at least 30 years ago now.
While the trailer gives us a glimpse of what Judy Blume Forever will be about, I feel like the documentary will be a love letter to the author. She’s written so many books and changed the course of literature for readers and authors alike. Despite being 85 years old, Judy Blume has and always will remain timeless, especially for those who read and love her books.
Judy Blume Forever premieres on April 21st on Amazon Prime Video.
