Random Family is the best book ever written. If you have not read it, I’m not sure what you are doing with your life.
LeBlanc found the seed for Random Family in a clip in Newsday announcing the trial of a hugely successful heroin dealer named Boy George. While reporting the piece, she got to know the girlfriends of the various dealers, and they soon became the main story.
LeBlanc quit her job…and spent the better part of the next twelve years working on the book, going through two agents, two publishers, and five editors.
Whether you were lucky enough to attend last night’s #LIVENYPL event with Wes Anderson, or joined us via livestream, we have plenty of events ahead of us! Check out the rest of our season, and get tickets while you still can!
