This month our book group will be reading "In the Unlikely Event" by Judy Blume. We will be meeting for drinks at Zocalo's and would love for new members to join us!! Reading the book is not mandatory!
Book Description: 416 pages
In the Unlikely Event is vintage Judy Blume, with all the hallmarks of Judy Blume’s unparalleled storytelling, and full of memorable characters who cope with loss, remember the good times and, finally, wonder at the joy that keeps them going.

She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over…
