Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Oprah is a woman whose first name is recognized around the world by many people from different walks of life. Talk show host, magazine editorial director, actress, and philanthropist describe just a portion of her life's work and passion. Paprocki, the author, tells the story of Oprah Winfrey, her childhood, career, and endeavors. Oprah is a woman that faced many challenges throughout her life, yet she continues to help many people with her work. As a young child, she was nicknamed "The Preacher" because she would quote the Bible and give sermons. On the other hand, Oprah faced some troubling times during her youth and had to turn her life around to overcome some of life's hurdles. In the book are the inspirational people who affected Oprah's life. There are a number of photographs and quotes marking Oprah's career and life. In the back of the book are titles from Oprah's Book Club, a time line of her life's events, additional books about her, and web site references. This book is a part of the "Black Americans of Achievement, Legacy Edition" series.
