McMillan to discuss latest novel

6/27/2014, 4:29 a.m.

Best-selling author Terry McMillan, whose thought-provoking books have touched millions of readers, will discuss “Who Asked You?” on July 7 at the Decatur Library.

The talk, part of the July Festival of Writers, takes place from 7:15 to 9 p.m.

“Who Asked You?” is an intimate look at the burdens and blessings of family and speaks to trusting your own judgment even when others don’t agree.

McMillan gives exuberant voice to characters who reveal how people live now in a racially diverse Los Angeles neighborhood.

Her novels “Waiting to Exhale,” “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” and “Disappearing Acts” have been made into movies. Other works include “Getting to Happy,” “The Interruption of Everything,” “A Day Late and a Dollar Short” and “Mama.”

The Decatur Library is at 215 Sycamore St. in downtown Decatur. For more information, visit www.dekalblibrary.org or call 404-370-3070.
