And the result—the magical chemistry that happens when people talk about Judy Blume—has been more profound than we could have imagined.
Best of all, we got to meet Judy. And she now knows us by name.

Spoiler alert: my story ends with me meeting The Fonz (aka Henry Winkler), his arm slung tightly around my waist.
