The intimate, exquisite book The Oprah Winfrey Show: Reflections on an American Legacy is now out from Harpo and Abrams—full of iconic photographs, personal memories, highlights from beloved shows and a foreword by Maya Angelou.
Other writers are contributing essays on specific topics, such as Bono and Nicholas Kristof on social action; Ellen DeGeneres, Stanley Crouch and Henry Louis Gates Jr. on equality; Elie Wiesel and Toni Morrison on writing books; Julia Roberts and Diane von Furstenberg on culture; as well as Maria Shriver and Gloria Steinem on women's issues. Dr. Phil, Mark Nepo and Marianne Williamson will discuss personal growth, while Dr. Oz and Bob Greene will weigh in on health and wellness. Plus, an added surprise: a tribute to Oprah by John Travolta and Phil Donahue.
Consider it a readable, shareable, can't-put-down hope chest from the last two-and-a-half decades.
Oprah Winfrey salutes and highlights Operation HOPE and its founder John Hope Bryant as a "Use Your Life" Awardee in this inspiring new book.
