Our Kickass Boomer of the Day is Judy Laufer, award-winning children, and young adult author. Judy joins us in this episode to talk about her books for grandparents, which they can read and discuss with their grandchildren. She also shares some advice for boomers who want to try something new. It doesn’t have to be related to writing like Judy. It should be something they enjoy.
