Summary
  • "The Oprah Winfrey Show" came to an end on May 25, 2011 after 25 years on television. Arguably the most influential television personality of all time, Ms. Winfrey and her show have had an impact on American culture that cannot be overstated. This beautifully illustrated book will explore and celebrate the legacy of the show using written contributions from a stellar group of public figures and images from notable photographers. The book will feature photographs from the Harpo archive, spanning the 25 years the show has been on the air, including the farewell season. Essays within the book will be dedicated to different themes (e.g., personal growth, social action, and literature) and will explore how the show has touched people's lives and impacted the conversation around those issues. The essays will be followed by narrative text, which will guide the reader through the history of the show's involvement with each topic and will include stories about the events, people, and organizations that have acted as touchstones or provided insights along the way. Accompanying the essays and narrative text will be images from the show, behind-the-scenes photographs, as well as signature portraits of the contributing celebrities taken by noted photographers. The book will allow "Oprah Winfrey Show "fans to understand the broad cultural impact of the show, while revisiting favorite guests, episodes, and stories.
