Apple and Oprah Winfrey have announced a book club that will connect a community of readers worldwide to stories that truly matter by today’s most thought-provoking authors.
Winfrey, the esteemed talk show host, philanthropist and CEO of OWN, will partner with Apple to build a vibrant, global book club that has the power to both transport and transform people — turning every book into an opportunity for self-discovery, and bringing the world together through reading.
Apple says for every Oprah’s Book Club selection sold on Apple Books, the tech giant will make a contribution to the American Library Association to support local libraries, fund programs that give access to everyone and create lifelong readers at an early age.
CEO Tim Cook says the company is honoured to provide a new platform for Oprah’s Book Club and support the American Library Association in opening hearts and minds to the joy of reading.
“Few people in the world can bring us together like Oprah, whose compassion and grace celebrating the power of books are unmatched.”
Readers around the world can easily discover Oprah’s Book Club through the Apple Books app and with the new Reading Goals feature in Apple Books, readers can make reading a daily habit more easily.
Audiences around the world can watch “Oprah’s Book Club” starting November 1 exclusively on Apple TV+.
The availability of the Oprah’s Book Club page and selections will vary based on publisher rights, translations and available format.
