Getting To Happy

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wednesday night, I had the opportunity to see author, Terry McMillan, speak at The Free Library of Philadelphia. She read a chapter from her just-released novel, Getting to Happy, which is a follow-up to the bestseller and motion picture Waiting to Exhale. After a very painful (and public) divorce, McMillan shied away from the spotlight, but is now back and ready to complete the next chapter of her life with Getting to Happy, which has already been adapted to a screenplay and is set to start production soon. (No word if Whitney while return.) Though, admittedly, I am not usually a fan of what is considered urban or African-American literature, I enjoyed the atmosphere, camaraderie, and emotions shared during her talk. So I will definitely have to catch up on her previous releases.

P.S. The pictures aren’t clear cause we weren’t allowed to use flash.

XOXO
