Corte Madera store
interviewed by Terry McMillan
Terry McMillan will interview author Heidi Durrow about Durrow's debut novel The Girl Who Fell From the Sky ($13.95). In Durrow's novel, The daughter of a Danish mother and a G.I. become the sole survivor of a family tragedy. Forced to move to a new city, with her strict grandmother as her guardian, Rachel is thrust for the first time into a mostly black community, where her light brown skin, blue eyes, and beauty bring a constant stream of attention her way. It's there, as she grows up and tries to swallow her grief, that she comes to understand how the mystery and tragedy of her mother might be connected to her own uncertain identity.
Terry McMillan is the author of Getting to Happy ($16.00), an exuberant return to the four unforgettable heroines from McMillan’s acclaimed novel Waiting to Exhale. Both Durrow and McMillan will sign copies of their books after the discussion.
