“There is absolutely no outdoing @Oprah, so I chose an exact depiction with tasteful ornamentations. Diamond earrings for class and a hand on the hip for sass,” says @monetxchange on choosing this October 1998 Vogue Cover. vogue.cm/gQLrqIY

@oprah's next selection is “Nightcrawling” by Leila Mottley. A former Youth Poet Laureate of Oakland, Mottley began this novel at age 17, & her lush, lyrical prose carries the reader through heroine Kiara's fight to survive in rapidly gentrifying Oakland. #ReadWithUs

Author @leilamottley began writing her new novel when she was a high school student — and now it’s an @oprahsbookclub pick. She hopes the book can be a “mirror or a window” for readers, who may see themselves reflected in the vulnerable story — or learn something new.

What actually ended up happening was far greater than this little girl born in Kosciusko, Mississippi—and everything she went through—could’ve ever dreamed of. Not only did it spend one full year on the @nytimes bestseller list, but it connected with so many of you.
