The woman who picks America’s most popular books will soon have her own biography to read.
Following three years of research, Kitty Kelley‘s 544-page biography of Oprah Winfrey‘s life has been completed. Crown Publishers has set a first printing of more than more 500,000 copies, and the book debuts on April 13, 2010, in hardcover, audiobook, and eBook formats.
Crown’s publisher Tina Constable had this statement: “Anyone who is a fan of Oprah Winfrey or who has followed her extraordinary life and career will be fascinated and newly informed by the closely observed, detailed, and well-rounded portrait of her provided by Kitty Kelley’s exhaustively researched book. Readers will come away with a greater appreciation of who Oprah really is beyond her public persona and a fuller understanding of her important place in American cultural history.”
