Coming to Oprah on Tuesday, is Wes Moore, the author of The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, (Random House). Moore is an investment banker, Rhodes scholar, former aide to Condoleezza Rice and, some say, the next black president.

Moore discovered another Wes Moore, his same age and from the same area of Baltimore. The other Wes Moore’s life was quite different, however, he was wanted for killing a cop. PW calls it a “moving exploration of roads not taken.” Libraries are showing 1:1 holds on modest ordering.

There’s no direct book tie-in (at least, none has been announced yet), but John Edwards’ former mistress, Rielle Hunter gives her first TV interview to Oprah on Thursday. Earlier this year, Oprah featured former Edwards’ aide, Andrew Young, who wrote about the affair in his book, The Politician. And, last year, Oprah interviewed Elizabeth Edwards about her book, Resilience., back when she was saying that the affair with “that woman” was a one-time thing.
