We are delighted to host Terry McMillan, one of this country’s finest authors, who will be at the Center for the Book with an exuberant new novel that brings back the four unforgettable heroines of Waiting to Exhale, the novel that forever changed African-American fiction. Her new book is Getting to Happy, more about the sassy, vibrant women who made Waiting to Exhale a watershed moment in literary history. Her new book looks at Savannah, Gloria, Bernadine and Robin 15 years later as they arrive at a midlife crossroads. They’re all learning to heal past hurts and reclaim their joys and dreams. It’s a novel full of spirit, faith, fun and passion; and you won’t want to miss meeting the author. Her previous bestsellers include Mama, Disappearing Acts, How Stella Got Her Groove Back and The Interruption of Everything.”Please note: To get copies of the author’s earlier books signed, you will need to purchase her new book from the bookseller at this event.
