Judy Blume has been promoting the film adaptation of her classic Tiger Eyes, popping up in unexpected places like Chelsea Handler’s show.

Answering one reader about narrating her audio books, she shared this nugget of advice: “…read everything you write out loud and listen before you let it go!” Meanwhile, the excitement around Blume’s film, which she co-wrote with her son Lawrence, is proof of the enduring connection readers have with the books we read as youngsters. Publisher Lizzie Skurnick’s new imprint focused on reprinting YA classics could not be coming at a better time.
