TERRY MCMILLIAN TO HEADLINE CHARLESTON’S BLACK INK BOOK FESTIVAL

One of America’s most beloved and critically-acclaimed authors, Terry McMillan, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Black Ink Book Festival. McMillian became the empowering voice of a generation of women with her New York Times #1 bestsellers Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back.   She will join 60 black authors and hundreds of readers for the third annual festival on Saturday, September 8, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Main branch of the Charleston County Public Library, 68 Calhoun St.

Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival‘s mission is to support local Black writers, creating a space for them to share their work, discuss their craft, and expose readers all ages to the great variety of African American authors in the area.  The Black Ink Book Festival is free and open to the public, but registration and tickets are required for the Featured Speaker: Terry McMillan event.
