Blume2In the Unlikely Event- A Novel

by Judy Blume

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.

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend! Can’t make it to the discussion? Sign up at the circulation desk for our online book club!
