Celebration of Marcus Book Stores 50th Anniversary Continues
Terry McMillan, best selling author of “Waiting to Exhale,” will appear in the Bay Area Saturday, Oct. 2, as part of the continuing celebration of Marcus Book Stores 50th Anniversary.
McMillan’s novel is widely considered a watershed moment in literary history. Her sassy and vibrant story about four African American women struggling to find love and their place in the world touched a cultural nerve, inspired a blockbuster film and generated a devoted audience.
Now in the sequel, “Getting to Happy,” McMillan revisits the four women at their own midlife crisis, as they learn to heal past hurts and reclaim their joy and dreams. They have exhaled, and now they are learning to breathe.
She will discuss and sign her new book at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, 3201 Adeline St., in Berkeley. Tickets are $10 and will include a private reception at 5 p.m. Tickets for $5 are for the reading only at 6 p.m.
Remaining tickets are on sale at Marcus Book Stores in San Francisco at (415) 346-4222 and in Oakland at (510) 652-2344, or online at MarcusBooksEvents.com.
