NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey's new book club pick is Robert Kolker's “Hidden Valley Road,” an in-depth true account of a 1950s family in which six of 12 children were diagnosed with schizophrenia. Winfrey says she will continue picking books during the coronavirus outbreak, and will seek new ways to engage readers.
In announcing her choice, Winfrey called “Hidden Valley Road” “a riveting true story of an American family that reads like a medical detective journey. It reveals the shame, denial, shock, confusion and misunderstanding of mental illness at a time when no one was really sure what schizophrenia was or how to treat it.”
