“Ask any writer and you’ll undoubtedly hear about the libraries in their lives,” writes Judy Blume, the award-winning and best-selling author and this year’s Stay Home and Read a Book Ball chair.

Blume firmly believes in the power of libraries and books to change lives, “Ask any reader and you will hear that books not only change lives, but sometimes save them. That’s exactly what the right book at the right time can do,” writes Blume. “So on March 6, 2016 I hope you’ll join me at the Stay Home and Read a Book Ball. It’s a book lover’s dream. No dressing up, no one in your face, no mystery food.  Just you and that book you’ve been longing to read.”
