Celebrating 35 years of defending free speech

It’s our 35th Anniversary! The typical gift for 35 years of marriage is jade or coral – well, we won’t hand out earrings or take you deep sea diving, but we DO have an exciting evening planned to benefit NCAC and honor renowned and much-censored author Judy Blume!JudyBlume

Join us on Monday, October 19, 2009 for A Night of Comedy with Judy Blume & Friends. This is not your run-of-the-mill party. It’s guaranteed to be full of unadulterated, uncensored fun. Fearless writers, artists, actors, comedians, musicians and filmmakers who have fought back against censorship will riff on growing up, puberty, or how they found the answers to the questions they were afraid to ask.

Judy Blume has a special place in the hearts and minds of Americans. Can you imagine going through childhood without ever reading her books like Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret; Blubber; Deenie; and Forever? But did you know that Judy Blume is one of the most censored writers in the U.S.?

We are honoring Judy and paying tribute to her longstanding defense of free speech and her courageous battles against all kinds of censorship. Please come! But hurry, you only have 15 days left to purchase tickets or become a table sponsor.

Nothing is off limits.  Nothing.  Now that’s a party!

Check out Event Chair Dan Glickman’s Five Questions in the LA Times, and look for Judy Blume’s Bold Question in Oct 1st’s Time Out New York!
