Oprah’s Next Pick? Looks like a HarperCollins Book

Upon Googling Oprah Book Club No. 56., a link to HarperCollins appears and the author identified is Joseph Krumgold. He is a Newberry Medal winning author.

The Amazon Oprah Book Club #56 profile lists Harper as the publisher, only the imprint is Harper Perennial.

Of course, this could just be a Harper Collins glitch. Or not.

edited to add that Mr.Krumgold passed away in 1980. I wonder if the author is always alive for Oprah to pick the book

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    It’s a glitch. Oprah has picked dead authors before (John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, Carson McCullers), but (1) the Harper reps are selling the title, according to Publishers Weekly , as “nonfiction” and Krumgold (as far as I know) published only fiction and (2) I can’t imagine Oprah picking a children’s book for her club.
