The New York Times > Books > Literary Prize for Judy Blume, Confidante to Teenagers

Judy Blume, whose frank portrayals of the travails of adolescence have won flocks of teenaged fans but whose books have sometimes been pulled from library shelves after being deemed inappropriate for preteens, has been selected by the National Book Foundation for its annual medal for distinguished contribution to American letters.

Blume is the first children's author to receive the medal.
