Since THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES, I have admired the writing and insights found in Sue Monk Kidd‘s work, so it was a joy to watch her thoughtful interview with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday. I had the pleasure of meeting Sue at a local appearance, and just being around her is calming. She is a deep thinker and a kind soul, and bears an aura of welcome and generosity.
THE INVENTION OF WINGS is one of the best books I have read in 2014. (Read my review here.) Imagine my thrill when Super Soul Sunday chose my video question to include in Sue’s interview after the show! I have been a long time admirer of Oprah, of course, so to be featured on the program with two such strong and empowering women was an honor. I have linked up to the video below, which I encourage you to watch in its entirety. (My question is at minute 29, not that I am counting. )
For appearing on the segment, Super Soul Sunday sent me a signed copy of Sue Monk Kidd’s THE INVENTION OF WINGS. I have another signed copy from the day I met Sue, so I will give that copy away to one lucky winner. To participate, simply leave a comment about your favorite work by Sue Monk Kidd, or your favorite Oprah’s book selection, and share on social media. Enter by Friday, April 18th at 9 PM to win. (US residents only, please.) Best wishes!
