As if Judy Blume wasn’t amazing enough, she’s about to receive another incredible honor. According to USA Today, the American Academy of Arts and Letters is planning on giving Blume a lifetime achievement award. The E.B. White Award comes with a $10,000 prize and is awarded for “achievement in children’s literature.”
Blume is one of the most iconic children’s authors of all-time. The 79-year old has used children’s literature to touch upon serious, adult themes, such as sexuality and racism. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret is viewed as one of the most seminal works of children’s literature of all-time.
