Beloved by growing girls everywhere–and their moms, dads, and brothers–Judy Blume’s books have been a staple over the past four decades. From her memorable young adult novels (Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing) to her works for adults, Blume’s award-winning writing has been adored by fans–and often challenged by critics. She’ll appear in conversation with Nancy Pearl to discuss her long career, focusing on her most recent adult novel. Her first since 1998, In the Unlikely Event follows three generations of society–their tragedies, friendships, and happy moments–and offers a portrait of humankind that only Blume can paint.
