Oprah Announces Third Selection for Oprah's Book Club 2.0...

...and the powerful new novel is The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd!  Click here to read a sneak peek of the article that will appear in the January edition of O, The Oprah Magazine.  

Written by Sue Monk Kidd, the best-selling author of The Secret Life of Bees, The Invention of Wings was inspired by the true story of Sarah Grimké, a 19th century abolitionist and suffragist.  The story follows the unlikely friendship between wealthy Charleston debutante, Sarah, and her slave, Handful, who was given to Sarah as a birthday present when she turned eleven years old.  Although their suffering and pain are not the same, both girl long to be free, Sarah from Southern patriarchy and racism and Handful from the bonds of slavery.  According to Oprah, "Sue Monk Kidd has written a conversation changer.  It is impossible to read this book and not come away thinking differently about our status as women and about all the unsung heroines who played a role in getting us where we are."

The Invention of Wings is set to release on January 7th, click here to place your hold today!
