Terry McMillan In her 1992 break­out best­seller, “Wait­ing to Ex­hale,” Terry McMillan cel­e­brated the power of fe­male bond­ing, long be­fore “Sex and the City” was but a twin­kle in Dar­ren Star’s eye. The author has re­turned to Sa­van­nah, Glo­ria, Robin and Ber­nan­dine, now nav­i­gat­ing life in their 50s, for her se­quel, “Get­ting to Happy.” Eso Won Book­store, 4331 Deg­nan Blvd., L.A. 7 p.m. Also, Vro­man’s Book­store, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. 7 p.m. Wed.


“Take 100: The Fu­ture of Film” A panel dis­cus­sion fea­tur­ing the Du­plass broth­ers (“Cyrus”) and “Ob­serve and Re­port” di­rec­tor Jody Hill will in­tro­duce “Take 100,” a book seek­ing to en­cap­su­late the film fes­ti­val ex­pe­ri­ence in print for the first time. Weigh­ing in at 450 pages, the densely il­lus­trated tome show­cases the work of 100 up-and-com­ing di­rec­tors, each hand­picked by 10 es­tab­lished film­mak­ers. The Cine­fam­ily, co-pre­sented by Book Soup. 611 N. Fair­fax Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. $12. (323) 655-2510. www.cine



Tom Mar­i­oni The in­flu­en­tial ex­per­i­men­tal artist, who founded the Mu­seum of Con­cep­tual Art in San Fran­cisco in 1970, will dis­cuss his lengthy ca­reer and present a live per­for­mance of his on­go­ing 1996 com­po­si­tion “Beer Drink­ing Sonata (for 13 play­ers)” with a num­ber of guest artists, in­clud­ing Cindy Bernard, Evan Hol­loway and Ma­teo Tan­natt. Mar­i­oni’s cur­rent ex­hibit at the Ham­mer runs through Oct. 10. Ham­mer Mu­seum, 10899 Wil­shire Blvd., West­wood. 7 p.m. Free. (310) 443-7000. ham­mer.ucla.edu


The Black Keys Gui­tarist Dan Auer­bach and gan­gly funk drum­mer Pa­trick Car­ney are a duo from Akron, Ohio, whose col­legekid jam-band look and im­pas­sioned stran­gle­hold on the blues make it clear this is nei­ther retro hip­ster­ism nor the post-punk tin­ker­ing of the White Stripes and com­pany. They’re bril­liant. Hollywood Pal­la­dium, 6215 Sun­set Blvd., Hollywood. 8 p.m. $43. (323) 962-7600.
