The readers have spoken! The selection for Moira’s Seattle Times Book Club discussion in May will be Terry McMillan’s “It’s Not All Downhill From Here,” chosen in a poll from four joyful-looking titles. The book, McMillan’s 10th novel (she’s best known for “Waiting to Exhale” and “How Stella Got Her Groove Back”), is the story of 68-year-old businesswoman Loretta, who is determined to prove that her best days are not behind her.

We’ll discuss “It’s Not All Downhill From Here” online at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 27.

For our April meeting, we’ll be discussing James McBride’s “Deacon King Kong” at noon on Wednesday, April 28, at All are welcome!
