This week at brookline booksmith

Tip-off in our events this week is set for 7pm Wednesday night with Bob Katz's examination of the life of college basketball referees. The week includes brand new fiction from Melissa Falcon Field, Bill Roorbach, Holly LeCraw and Jacqueline Winspear. Throw in David Shields in conversation with Christopher Lydon, and our events series comes up just one short of an elite 8. Wait, does Sunday's special Passover themed storytime count? Elite 8, here we come!

We are excited to announce that tickets to our event with Judy Blume on June 24th go on sale today! Brookline Booksmith is thrilled to bring Judy Blume to the Coolidge Corner Theater for her first adult novel in over 15 years, In the Unlikely Event. When Judy Blume was a teenager a series of passenger airplanes crashed in Elizabeth, New Jersey within a three month period. “These events have lingered in my mind ever since,” says Blume. “We were witnessing things that were incomprehensible to us as teenagers. Was it sabotage? An alien invasion? No one knew, and people were understandably terrified.” Blume brings us the lives of three generations of families, friends, and strangers, who are continually affected by these events.
