very useful workshop
Terry McMillan was predictably amazing! Can't wait to read her latest masterpiece.
Wonderful!! Terry McMillan was soo raw and edgy. Hearing her read made me want to jump into the book. I am soo happy I was able to attend
This was a wonderful FREE gathering of beautiful women to see, listen to, and meet the talented Ms. McMillan. She was gracious and candid, as usual and it was a wonderful opportunity for me. I am also very thankful for her offer to those of us with difficulties in walking to come to the front of the line during the book signing portion, thank you and thank you Enoch Pratt staff for hosting in your beautifully historic venue.

Author, Terry McMillan was my first Writers LIVE event, but it will not be my last!! It was a great event and even greater to see so many people supporting the author, demonstrating their love of reading, and appreciating the excellent events that are hosted at Enoch Pratt!
James McBride did a lot of focused research on James Brown the musician. He likened James Brown's living and death to the experience of Black people in America. I especially liked his breaking down the musical patterns in James Brown's music and sharing the names of many others who helped him create different unique sound and movement. McBribe was very clear about the focus of the story he writes about James Brown. McBribe is hell bent on Brown receiving his props as a legend and man. He is not engaging spaces where James is not given due for his genius musical talent. He is passionate about the children of North Carolina receiving the 104 million dollars left to them by James Brown. James McBride gives Brown his proper respects.
