judyblumeAcclaimed writer Judy Blume has been working on a new novel for adults. According to Blume’s website, this “complicated story” takes place during the 1950’s.

The New York Times reports that Alfred A. Knopf has scheduled it for release in Summer 2015. Blume’s editor Carole Baron promises that this project is “pure Judy Blume, writing about family and about friendships, about love, about betrayal.”

Not too long ago, Blume teamed up with her son Lawrence to write the script for a movie adaptation of her young adult book Tiger Eyes. During a promotional event, Blume revealed that she had an unfinished manuscript she started back in 2009. Perhaps, she’s finally putting the finishing touches on that project and soon it will be unveiled to the world. (via The Guardian)
