Tonight there will be a talk by Milton resident Kim McLarin who wrote the book called Womanish: A Grown Black Woman Speaks on Life and Love” (c2019). Searing in its emotional honesty, this book is an essay collection by award-winning author Kim McLarin that explores what it means to be a black woman in today’s turbulent times. Writing with candor, wit and vulnerability on topics including dating after divorce, depression, parenting older children, the Obamas, and the often fraught relations between white and black women, McLarin unveils herself at the crossroads of being black, female and middle-aged, and, ultimately, American. Powerful and timely, this author draws upon a lifetime of experiences to paint a portrait of a black woman trying to come to terms with the world around her, and of a society trying to come to terms with black women.” (Publisher’s description).
