LOS ANGELES (AP) – Oprah Winfrey will have an in-depth conversation with renowned author Isabel Wilkerson as part of the next installment of her “Oprah’s Book Club.”
Winfrey’s episode will focus on Wilkerson’s book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” which will air for free on Apple TV + Friday. The detailed discussion will explore the context of the book that explores Wilkerson’s exploration of race and hierarchy in the US.
In the episode Winfrey will also ask about the reason behind the writing of ‘Caste’ for Wilkerson, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her book ‘The Warmth of Other Suns’.
In August Winfrey chose Wilkerson’s “Caste” for her book club.
Winfrey will dig deeper to discuss the book’s themes in a two-part episode on Apple TV + on October 9.
“Caste” continues the partnership between Winfrey’s book club and Apple that began last fall. It features past picks such as Ta-Nehisi Coates’ novel “The Water Dancer” and Robert Kolker’s non-fiction “Hidden Valley Road”.
