Fantastic news: LOVE WARRIOR by Glennon Doyle Melton is the new Oprah Book Club pick!
This astonishing memoir depicts Melton’s journey after she discovers her husband’s infidelity and uses her grief and anger as a path to her own redemption. LOVE WARRIOR captures the beauty that unfolds when one woman refuses to settle for good enough, stops numbing or denying her pain, and makes her own rules for love and life. Harpo Films has optioned the film and television rights to the book.
“To have Oprah Winfrey — the woman who taught the world not to fear raw, intimate discussions – help introduce LOVE WARRIOR to the world feels like magic to me,” said Glennon Doyle Melton. “I trust Oprah, and I’m honored.”
Watch the video announcement from Oprah:
The cross-platform book club selection kicks off with Oprah’s interview with Melton in the October issue of O, The Oprah Magazine (on sale September 13). Oprah.com will feature a reading guide as well as Oprah’s personal thoughts about the book, and the official Oprah’s Book Club group on Goodreads, will feature content and encourage discussions about the new book club selection.
Glennon appeared on “CBS This Morning” today and the pick got media pick-up in USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and the Chicago Tribune. She’ll appear on OWN’s “Super Soul Sunday” on 9/11, then do a Facebook Live chat with Oprah immediately after the show.
