Are you there, God? Judy Blume’s speaking in Hartford

The much-loved writer who got many an adolescent through a dark and lonely night will deliver The Clemens Lecture to benefit The Mark Twain House & Museum at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Lincoln Theater, University of Hartford, 200 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hartford.

The event will be a conversation with the audience moderated by Julie Pistell (no slouch of a writer, herself), Mark Twain House’s communications associate; director of the Writing at the Mark Twain House program; host of a national writer’s podcast, Literary Disco, and founder of Hartford’s Syllable reading series.

Tickets are $25 and $40; an $85 ticket includes VIP seating and a pre-event reception with Judy Blume. To reserve a place, call 860-768-4228 or go to www.hartford.edu/hartt.

Act fast. You don’t have much time.

Tickets are $25 and $40; an $85 ticket includes VIP seating and a pre-event reception with Judy Blume. To reserve a place, call 860-768-4228 or go to http://www.hartford.edu/hartt. (It’s a popular event — don’t delay on this one.)

 

Rather than a traditional lecture, the event will be a “conversation with the audience” moderated by Julia Pistell, Communications Associate at The Mark Twain House & Museum, Director of the Writing at the Mark Twain House program, host of a national writer’s podcast, Literary Disco, and founder of Hartford’s Syllable reading series. “Tons of time will be available for audience questions,” says Pistell. “Judy wants to hear what you have to say about growing up, growing older, censorship, reading, and writing.”

  1. I wish I were working! She got me through many an adolescent nightmare. I still remember reading “Forever” on the back of the school bus in about 7th grade. Cover this for us, please, and make us feel like we are there!
