This Week on Oprah!

On Wednesday, Maria Shriver talks to Oprah about her new book, Just Who Will You Be? In it, Shriver reveals that she lost her identity when she had to resign her job at NBC after her husband became governor of California. The PW review says, “This slender inspirational book is a candid self-portrait of a woman in transition…Shriver’s earnest self-inquiry and her humility and readiness to regard herself as a 50-year-old work-in-progress make for a charming and genuinely inspiring read.” Reprinted in the book is the speech Shriver made at her nephew’s high school graduation (graduation speeches play a pivotal role in Shriver’s recent writing. Her 2005 title, And One More Thing Before You Go, was based on another of her graduation speeches). The book is on order in most libraries.
