Oprah Names Next Book Club Pick


Publishers and authors love Oprah because the books she picks sell like hot cakes. Now Ayana Mathis has had the good fortune of having her book, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, chosen as the latest Oprah’s Book Club selection.

The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is a debut of extraordinary distinction, telling the story of the children of the Great Migration through the trials of one unforgettable family. Following the indomitable Hattie Shepherd and her nine children through sixty years of desolation, passion, courage and salvation, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is wondrous from first to last—glorious, harrowing, unexpectedly uplifting, and blazing with life.
