Meanwhile, Winfrey's fun outing comes after she discussed the importance of diverse books at the 74th National Book Awards Ceremony & Benefit Dinner in November.
“I'm talking about the readers who picked up The Color Purple 40 years ago and found the kind of truth that I found in those pages,” Winfrey said before she quoted a passage from the book.
Describing in her speech how the novel, which won the 1983 National Book Award for Fiction, has been adapted throughout the years, Winfrey said, “That is the power of a story well told,” she said. “Thank you Alice Walker.”
Alice Walker became the first Black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Color Purple in 1983.
