Chicago Humanities Festival presents Judy Blume at Francis W. Parker School

"Judy Blume, literary icon and beloved author of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret; Forever; and Summer Sisters,
returns with a story that’s preoccupied her for the past sixty years.
When Blume was a teenager in the early 1950s, a series of passenger
airplanes crashed in Elizabeth, New Jersey within a three-month period.
“These events have lingered in my mind ever since. It was a crazy time.
We were witnessing things that were incomprehensible to us as
teenagers.” In the Unlikely Event traces the reverberations of
these tragedies, through her own life and beyond. Blume returns to
Chicago to discuss her new novel with one of the many readers she’s
inspired over the years, the Chicago Tribune’s Heidi Stevens."
