One of our favorite childhood authors is back and she’s writing for us once again; Judy Blume’s latest book “In the Unlikely Event” is her first adult book in more than fifteen years. In this fiction that premiered at #4 on the New York Times bestseller list, Blume revisits her adolescence…using a series of tragic events that took place in the 1950s in her hometown as the backdrop for a tale of three generations of family and friends. Author Ridley Pearson talks with Blume about the five year journey she took to finish this novel, her writing inspirations and favorite past times.
