Judy Blume: In the Unlikely Event
Skip Viragh Center for the Arts at Chaminade College Preparatory Academy

When a series of passenger airplanes crashed in Elizabeth, New Jersey within a three-month period in 1951-1952, Judy Blume was a teenager. Against this background, Blume uses her imagination to bring us the lives of three generations of families, friends, and strangers, who will be profoundly affected by these events, either directly or indirectly. We see them coping not only with grief but with first love, estranged parents, difficult friendships, familial obligations, divorce, career ambitions, a grandparent's love, a widower's hope, and everything in between. In the Unlikely Event is filled with the same warmth and authenticity that have won Blume the hearts and minds of readers of all generations. Brown Paper Tickets Ticket Widget Loading...

Judy Blume (born Judy Sussman on February 12, 1938) is a popular American author. Blume's novels for children and teenagers were among the first to tackle such controversial matters as racism (Iggie's House), menstruation (Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.), divorce (It's Not the End of the World), bullying (Blubber), masturbation (Deenie; Then Again, Maybe I Won't) and teen sex (Forever). Fans of Blume's novels have praised her use of real-life settings, ambivalent endings and gentle humor. Her allegedly ambiguous treatment of moral issues made her at one time a regular target of school library censors and the religious right. Her books are still often challenged in school libraries; in fact, Forever was the second most challenged book of 2005, according to the American Library Association. She is recognized as one of the most banned children's authors in the United States which eventually led her to edit a collection of short stories about censorship (Places I Never Meant to Be: Original Stories by Censored Writers). Despite ardent attempts at censorship Blume's young adult novels and books for children have sold 80 million copies world wide. Blume has also published adult fiction.
