Live program + Q&A! Starts @ 8:30 p.m. EST.
In It’s Not All Downhill From Here, Terry McMillan’s 10th consecutive New York Times bestselling work of fiction, Loretha Curry is on the eve of her 68th birthday and has much to be happy about: a booming beauty-supply empire, lifelong friends, and a husband who still surprises her – and she’s determined to prove anyone with an outdated view of aging, wrong. But when her world abruptly goes sideways, Loretta must reimagine, and realize, a brand-new life.
Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “Lively and perceptive” and by the San Francisco Chronicle as “a funny and honest portrait of a woman, late in life, finding second chances,” McMillan’s latest is a paean to the resilience and pragmatism of women, something she discusses with conversation partner Glory Edim, founder of the Well-Read Black Girl digital platform and editor of the printed anthology of the same name.
