Denene Millner

Atlanta author Denene Millner writes about parenting through the lens of an African-American mother, but she offers answers to universal questions: Is my preteen’s outfit appropriate? Am I being a helicopter parent or disciplining my kids appropriately? Is it OK for my 9-year-old to watch “America’s Next Top Model”? Millner is the author of My Brown Baby, a parenting advice book based on the website of the same name. (It’s the outlet that first broke the news about Trayvon Martin’s death.) She will read from Early Sunday Morning—a sweet children’s book that recalls her true-life experience of singing a solo in front of her church family—followed by a discussion and reading from My Brown Baby
