In the Unlikely Event: Moms Book Club for July

Mom's Book Nook: a monthly virtual book club for moms! Join us in July to read and discuss In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume.

I have been a big reader for as long as I can remember. and as an adult I've loved being part of a monthly book club! There's nothing better than getting together with a group of girlfriends and a glass of wine to chat over a new book. Since I've had my boys I don't make it to book club enough, which is why I'm so excited to be joining my friend Meghan at Playground Parkbench to host a virtual book club just for moms!

Meghan asked me to be a co-host of her Mom's Book Nook monthly virtual book club and I jumped at the chance! Every month, we'll be reading a new book together and then getting together online to discuss. Just like a regular book club, except you don't have to leave the house (and it's totally OK to wear your pajamas). Head on over to Playground Parkbench for all the details on how to follow along, when we are getting online to discuss, and how to WIN a $10 gift card for your next book!

While you're there, be sure to check out some of Meghan's great activities, recipes, and tips. She has saved my sanity more than once and I'm so excited to be hosting this book club with her!

July's Mom's Book Nook selection is In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume.

Who didn't love Judy Blume as a kid? She's the author of teenage classics like Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret and Freckle Juice. In the Unlikely Event is her new novel for adults.

Set in the early 1950's, In the Unlikely Event follows the residents of Elizabeth, NJ, as they experience incredible tragedy and coincidence - three plane crashes within weeks of each other. It seems impossible but the crashes actually did happen in Blume's childhood. 

In the Unlikely Event weaves young love, tragedy, hope and family dynamics in the complex narratives of its characters. It is a gripping novel that holds you from beginning to end.

I'd love for you to join us for Mom's Book Nook and be part of our virtual book club. I can't wait to chat books with you!
