Amy Poehler is a Judy Blume fan

We want in on the Amy Poehler book club.

The actress is not only the hysterical star of "Parks and Recreation" and a darn fine co-host of Awards shows, but she also is a big fan of author Judy Blume.

"I am excited to see Judy Blume’s new movie, because she is a very special lady, and more movies should be produced with her name," Poehler told Vulture. "Or she should just sit and read her books aloud and we should just gather at her feet."

A film adaptation of Blume's novel "Tiger Eyes" was just released. Poehler also has an affinity for Blume's very popular adolescent novel "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret" calling the book "very special."

Might we ever see a pairing of the two? Especially given the fact Poehler is working on her own book which is being described as an "illustrated, non-linear diary"? The actress certainly seems open to it.

"Oh, anytime," Poehler said. "I would love to work with her. She [wrote] the books of my generation, certainly. I learned a lot from her."

  1. I Should Care Why?

    I never laughed once or even smiled at anything Amy or Tina have done. Completely overrated and going nowhere. Learn to cook or something.

  34. palintwit

    We arrive in rusty 1964 motorhomes.
    We bring our bibles and loaded assault weapons.
    We wear ridiculous clothing and have teabags dangling from our earlobes.
    We carry misspelled racist signs as we stomp all over the White house lawn.
    We eat Chick-fil-A and wash it down with Everclear.
    We are Sarah Palin's real Americans.
    We love the baby jesus but we love to boink our cousins even more.
    We believe that the earth is only 6,000 years old and that early man walked with the dinosaurs.
    We believe that nascar is a real sport and that Dale Earnhardt was a great American athlete.
    We are the birthers. We are tea party patriots.
    We are bigots and inbreds. We are morons and we are proud.

    • Dreb

      The word you are looking for is "you're," not "your," just FYI. For example: "You're (i.e., you are) not clever...you're (i.e., you are) jealous."

      Apparently you're one of the mispelled-sign carrying inbreds palintwit was referring to...
