One of my favorite things to do is rummage through @oprahmagazine’s book editor @leighhaberrr‘s office. She has all the latest books often before they’re published. What to my wondering eyes did appear.. a new faaaavorite thing! Tap the link in my bio to get it 📚 @michelleobama
‘Tis the season for Faaaaaavorite Things 2019! I’ve been searching all year long for the absolute must-have gifts and this time around I even got a little help from @ladygaga and @sarahjessicaparker. Now it’s my hope that these become some of YOUR favorite things. Happy holidays! Tap the link in my bio or head to oprahmag.com/oprah-favorite-things-2019 for the full list. @oprahmagazine
My next @oprahsbookclub pick is going in a completely different direction than the last one: “Olive, Again” by Elizabeth Strout. As cranky as Olive is, she teaches us so much about loneliness, judgement, empathy, and loss…all the things that make us human. Tap the link in my bio to get a copy and follow @oprahsbookclub to join the conversation. Be ready to discuss with me starting 11/18! #ReadWithUs 🍂🍂🍂
Happy Sunday to you all. Don’t think I’ve ever seen burgundy peonies before. Wanted to share. Sending you the same blessings that were just sent to me from @jeffleatham . Card reads.. “Flowers, Just because life is beautiful.” Here’s to a beautiful extra-hour of sleep, blessed week🌺🌺🌺🌺

Moments before I stepped on stage to have my first @oprahsbookclub discussion for “The Water Dancer” with @tanehisipcoates and 234 book club members! I always wanted to be able to share the pleasures, the excitement, the tension, the drama a good book can bring you. And we’re finally doing it. Stream it tomorrow 11/1 on @appletv #ReadWithUs
Look who came for lunch...with his own book! @stephenathome. We both love the The Water Dancer. So many interesting insights. Join me at @oprahsbookclub where I’m discussing chapters 18-27 with members today. See y’all there 👋🏾 #ReadWithUs
Thank you @people for my story and the story of other women we know (and should know) who are making an impact around the world. Women like @AnaGraceProject (who’s supporting survivors of gun trauma), @tarajiphenson (who’s ending the stigma of mental illness), and @alexmorgan13, @mrapinoe, and @carlilloyd (who are championing equal pay). Available Friday 10/11 #WomenChangingTheWorld 📸: @ruvenafanador
Spent a day marinating in black excellence with these gorgeous, promising, young men at @morehouse1867. They honored me with roses, a song, and a portrait for a scholarship fund I set up 30 years ago. Can’t wait to see what they do with their future.
@tylerperry you built the biggest studio in America, one that can fit all the other Hollywood studios combined and still have room to spare. You’ve also created a dream of hope and possibility for everyone to know that no matter who you are or where you come from, you can always do better when you’re aligned with the Divine. Thank you for the naming of the soundstages. I love mine. #GloryToGlory #ImagineThis
I’m still in awe of that first sentence in The Water Dancer, which as you know was a full paragraph. Sharing over lunch with @lupitanyongo and @cynthiaerivo. Both who’ve portrayed enslaved women. Head to @oprahsbookclub for our full discussion 📚 #ReadwithUs
This is the man I wish was running for President of the USA. His decency prevails in all decision making. His 10 steps for leadership revealed in his new book #RideOfALifetime apply to every business and every life. Watch my conversation with Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger on @supersoul this Sunday 9/29 at 12|11c on @owntv and Facebook. Or listen to the podcast “SuperSoul Conversations” this Wednesday 10/2.
