Judy Blume talks to Chelsea Handler about the 50th anniversary of 'Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret'

Judy Blume published Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret in 1970. It’s been 50 years since the book hit shelves and its themes — puberty, sexuality, religion (or lack thereof) — remain prescient in 2020. Over the past few decades, Blume’s used not only her words but her voice as well to raise awareness to issues such as censorship, reproductive rights and politics.

Watch Blume speak with comedian Chelsea Handler at 12:30 p.m. EST/9:30 a.m. PST on Tuesday, Feb. 11 live from the 2020 MAKERS Conference.
