Sacramento author, poet, screenwriter and educator Terry A. O’Neal was our first guest of 2017.

Terry is a bestselling author, whose poetry has been published in numerous magazines, journals and newspapers. Her previous publications include three volumes of poetry, Motion Sickness, The Poet Speaks in Black and Good Mornin’ Glory; two children’s books, Ev’ry Little Soul and My Jazz Shoes; and the award winning family fiction novel Sweet Lavender.

Terry has been named among the most popular African American female writers of our time, featured in a book entitled Literary Divas: The Top 100+ Most Admired African American Women in Literature – a list of women who’ve left a mark on the wider world through their writing.

We were thrilled to have Terry join Scriptorium on January 28, 2017 as she read her work and shared with us that evening.
