Today, Oprah and Apple announced that Oprah’s Book Club will be coming to Apple TV+.
The book club has been bringing a community of readers together since the talk show host started it in 1996. Now, Apple is making it easier to be a part of that community and connect with others.
“I am who I am today because of the experience of learning to read at an early age. Reading opened up a whole world for me beyond the red dirt road and my grandmother’s porch in Mississippi,” said Oprah Winfrey. “I want to do that for everybody. And the opportunity to do this with Apple, to speak to people all over the world about the pleasures, the excitement, the tension, the drama that a good book can bring you … I don’t know what’s better than that.”
The first book Winfrey’s first book selection is “The Water Dancer” by Ta-Nehisi Coates, which will be released tomorrow and currently available for pre-order now on Apple Books in both ebook and audiobook formats. Winfrey will interview Coates for the first installment of her new exclusive Apple TV+ series, “Oprah’s Book Club,” premiering November 1.
“Few people in the world can bring us together like Oprah, whose compassion and grace celebrating the power of books are unmatched,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “It’s our honor 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.”
Look for Oprah’s Book club in the Apple Books app and check back on Apple TV+ for a new episode every two months.
For every Oprah’s Book Club selection sold on Apple Books, Apple 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.
