Oprah Winfrey has announced a new version of Oprah’s Book Club, a special collection of seven meaningful books dubbed “The Books That Help Me Through”. This collection represents titles that have helped Oprah herself through life’s challenging moments, which she hopes will spark impactful conversation and unite our global community. Throughout November, Oprah will dive deeper into each book on Instagram (@oprahsbookclub), exploring the themes of each book and fostering an open online conversation.
Oprah Winfrey said, “Instead of announcing one new Oprah’s Book Club selection this month, I’ll be spotlighting a curated list of seven titles I cherish for their ability to comfort, inspire, and enlighten me. It’s a mix of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and spirituality, books I know and trust and revisit time and again.”
