Oak Park Speaker Series: Terry McMillan

The Oak Park Speaker Series is proud to present Terry McMillan on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.  


Terry McMillan was
born and raised in Port Huron, Michigan, and discovered her love of literature
while shelving books at the 
local library. She burst on to the literary scene in
1987 with her wildly acclaimed New York Times bestseller 
Mama,
which won the Doubleday New Voices in Fiction award in 1986 and an American
Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation in 1987. 
Terry’s signature
humor, wisdom, and warmth made “
Waiting
to Exhale”, “A Day Late and A Dollar Short”, “The
Interruption of Everything”, “How Stella Got Her Groove Back”, “Getting
to Happy”, “Disappearing Acts” and “Who Asked You?”
all New York Times Best Sellers. “Waiting
to Exhale” and “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” were made into award winning major motion
pictures that proved huge at the box office, and “Disappearing Acts” and “A Day Late and A Dollar Short” were adapted into successful made-for-TV
movies. 
Terry was awarded an
Essence Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. Beloved by her fans, Terry’s books
have sold millions of copies worldwide.
