“My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully, and yell for help if you need it.” – Judy Blume
Judy Blume, called “the Queen of YA” by The Washington Post, releases her first novel for adults in 16 years, In the Unlikely Event, this June. Blume — prolific, controversial, beloved — is a literary iconoclast whose novels have been among the first to discuss teen sex, masturbation, menstruation and divorce. For three generations of pre-teen girls, Blume’s books have answered the most intimate questions of love, loss, and growing up.
Blume’s latest book, In the Unlikely Event, is based in the supernatural early 1950’s, when three generations of New Jerseyans encounter a fateful string of airplane crashes. Judy Blume will discuss her latest book, her career spanning nearly five decades of writing, children empowerment, and her favorite stories about the young and young at heart.
