Earlier this month, our co-founder Cynthia Hornig had the great pleasure of meeting one of America’s most beloved and best-selling authors, THE Judy Blume, and she left with a piece of the special experience to share with WYSK readers. So now’s your chance to win a signed copy of the newly released, In the Unlikely Event, Judy’s first book for adults in over 15 years.
In her highly anticipated new novel, Judy creates a richly textured and moving story of three generations of families, friends and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by unexpected events. Here’s the story synopsis…
In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen, and in love for the first time, a succession of airplanes fell from the sky, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of actual events that Blume experienced in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, she paints a vivid portrait of a particular time and place—Nat King Cole singing “Unforgettable,” Elizabeth Taylor haircuts, young (and not-so-young) love, explosive friendships, A-bomb hysteria, rumors of Communist threat. And a young journalist who makes his name reporting tragedy. Through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on.
More than 80 million copies of Judy Blume’s books have been sold, and her work has been translated into thirty-one languages.
