Oprah and Obama head for A Promised Land
Obama served at the 44th president of the United States. His book, which is scheduled to drop November 17, is the first volume of his presidential memoir.
“This book was worth the wait,” said Winfrey. “Everybody who reads it is going to be on this journey from the grueling and monotonous grind of the campaign, to taking us inside the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room and the Situation Room and sometimes, even the bedroom. This book has both the intimacy and the grandeur coming through in this memoir, and I have so been looking forward to speaking with him about all of it.”
The episode of The Oprah Conversation with the former president will premier globally on Apple TV+ on Tuesday, November 17 at 9 AM ET / 6 AM PT. The episode will be available to watch for free through Tuesday, December 1.
A Promised Land will debut on Apple Books on Nov. 17.
Winfrey’s interview show kicked off in the summer of 2020. The goal is to offer perspective on a range of topics shaping our world, and reveal gripping stories of human connection, according to Apple. Previous episodes of The Oprah Conversation explored racism in the time of Black Lives Matter.
