Judy Blume's novels for children and young adults have sold more than 80 million copies -- and many women consider her an integral part of their coming of age. Blume has tackled controversial subjects such as racism, religion and masturbation. Now, for the first time, Blume is seeing one of her novels turned into a movie. Her son, film director Lawrence Blume has brought "Tiger Eyes" to the big screen.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Judy Blume, author of numerous works of teen fiction, including "Tiger Eyes"
  • Lawrence Blume, director and co-writer of "Tiger Eyes," a film based on the novel by his mother, showing at the 2012 San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
