Judy Blume’s hotly anticipated new novel, “In the Unlikely Event,” is becoming quite an event of its own. The novel, which centers on a series of plane crashes in Elizabeth, N.J., in the early 1950s, is her first book for adults in 16 years. To mark the occasion, her publisher, Knopf, has organized a celebrity-studded tour. The publicity blitz will kick off with an event at Book Con in New York on May 31, where the best-selling novelist Jennifer Weiner will interview Ms. Blume.
