There is a bit of history that comes along with this headline, something that you can add to your Oprah trivia or mention at your next book-club meeting. In an interview with Gene Siskel, he once asked Oprah, “What do you know for sure?” a simple question that lead to great things for Oprah down the line.
The question really stuck with Winfrey, it was such an interesting question that it became the basis for the “What I Know For Sure” column in O, The Oprah Magazine. Saying that the question offered her a way to take “stock of her life,” Oprah has penned one column a month over the last fourteen years, years in which she retired The Oprah Winfrey Show (the highest-rated program of its kind in history), launched her own television network, became America’s only African American billionaire, was awarded an honorary degree from Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, watched friends and colleagues come and go, lost beloved pets and adopted new ones, and celebrated milestone birthdays. Throughout it all, she’s continued to offer her profound and inspiring words of wisdom in her “What I Know For Sure” column in O, The Oprah Magazine.
This September, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a book packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. The audiobook, which will be published simultaneously from Macmillan Audio, will be narrated by Winfrey herself.
What I Know For Sure offers a rare and powerful glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world’s most extraordinary women. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and dynamic, the words Oprah shares aloud in the audiobook What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of wisdom and truth that listeners will turn to again and again.
“We are thrilled that Oprah Winfrey will be reading her audiobook,” said Mary Beth Roche, President and Publisher at Macmillan Audio. “Throughout her career, Oprah has created unparalleled connections with millions of people. Listeners to the audiobook will appreciate hearing the thoughtful insights shared in this book in Oprah’s own voice. It is sure to be one of the most powerful and sought after audiobooks of the year.”
What I Know For Sure will be available for sale wherever audiobooks are sold on September 2nd, and is available for preorder from major retailers immediately.
