Oprah Makes Her Second Book Club Selection

And the second selection of the Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 is…The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by newcomer Ayana Mathis. Announcing the selection, Oprah stated: “The opening pages of Ayana’s debut took my breath away. I can’t remember when I read anything that moved me in quite this way, besides the work of Toni Morrison.”
 
The Plot:
 
In her extraordinary debut, Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration through the trials of one indomitable heroine (Hattie) and her unforgettable family.
 

 
In support of the book, Oprah.com/bookclub will be featuring a series of interviews with author Mathis as well as offering readers a chance to have their questions answered by the author.
