Black Ink Book Festival: The Charleston African American Book Festival

  • Charleston County Public Library (map)

Me3 will be in Charleston in September! Come meet us!

About the Black Ink Book Festival: Terry McMillan, one of America’s most beloved and critically acclaimed authors, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Black Ink Book Festival on September 8. 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 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Main Branch of the Charleston County Public Library, 68 Calhoun St. The event is free and open to the public.

McMillan’s books have sold millions of copies worldwide. Four have been made into major motion pictures. Known for “irreverent, pitch-perfect tales of women’s lives,” McMillan’s seven bestsellers are rich in fearless wisdom, heart-touching characters, and unforgettable stories of friendships, healing, intergenerational bonds, and women saving their own lives. “I write about what breaks my heart,” she has said. “What I don’t understand. And what I wish I could change.”

McMillan is an Essence Lifetime Achievement Award winner, a featured guest in Oprah’s Life Class, and has appeared on shows ranging from The View and Tavis Smiley to The Daily Show. As a speaker, McMillan dives into the many themes of her books and shares her own personal journey through challenges, relationships, addiction, and health issues. With signature sass and disarming authenticity, she connects to audiences through powerful storytelling and a constant credo: It’s never too late to become the person that you want to be.

“We are thrilled that Terri McMillian, one of the most inspiring authors in America today, will join us for our third festival,” announced Brittany Mathis, director of the Charleston Friends of the Library, presenter of this year’s festival. “Having one of the most influential writers is truly a dream come true.”

The mission of Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival is to support local black writers, creating a space for them to share their work, discuss their craft, and expose readers of all ages to the great variety of African American authors in the area. General admission to the event is FREE to the public and includes all author exhibits, featured author sessions, and entertainment.
