One of today’s most important novelists, Terry McMillan has always written from an honest place, creating fresh, lively, and often poignant works that are enthralling and inspirational tonic for many contemporary women.
The author of many New York Times bestsellers, her best-known books Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back have sold millions of copies each. Made into successful movies, they have virtually become a cultural phenomenon – initiating the public into the multifaceted world of the contemporary African American woman while also conveying the universal experiences of women of all races. “Everything I write about is empowerment,” she says. And by sharing common hardships and triumphs, she empowers all women to find the honesty, humor, and hope in any situation.
Warm, witty, sincere, and heartfelt, McMillan adds a unique twist to her presentations. Reading from both published pieces and works in progress, including her latest, Who Asked You?, she encourages audiences to comment, share their experiences, and engage her in a dialogue. It is a rare and enriching occurrence to converse with such a powerful storyteller as McMillan and to gather firsthand insight into an author’s creative process.
An unforgettable event, her presentation truly conveys the power of expressing the written word and the impact it can have on our lives.
