Cynthia Bond: ?Ruby? (An Oprah?s Book Club Selection)

New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Bond discusses her first novel, ?Ruby,? which is an Oprah?s Book Club choice. Cynthia says that as an adult she was flooded with painful memories of sexual abuse from her childhood. She found healing in a writing class and her work there eventually led to the idea for the novel that would take her 10 years to complete. ?Ruby? was finally published in 2014. Cynthia says the message she wants to share in her book is about survival. "The lesson is that it is possible to not just survive anything, but it is possible to be a victor,? she says. ?It is possible to be victorious over any obstacle. And that's something I know in my marrow. I know in my bones." Cynthia also talks about her years of teaching writing classes to the homeless and at-risk youth throughout the Los Angeles area.

Beto O?Rourke: A Hopeful Voice

Oprah sits down with political hopeful Beto O?Rourke, who many say has emerged as a fresh voice for Americans who feel detached, divided and disillusioned in today?s political climate. Beto, who?s known for his successful grassroots political campaigns, became one of the youngest city council members to ever serve in El Paso, Texas. In 2012, he pulled off a political upset that landed him three terms in Congress. Then, Beto created big buzz on social media, galvanizing support across the country during his 2018 bid to unseat Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Although Beto narrowly lost that race, enthusiasm for him to run for President continues to swell. Beto says he?s weighing that decision with his wife, Amy, and their three children. ?If we come to that same decision about this opportunity to serve and to run, then it will be on that we do together,? he says.

William Paul Young: See God In a New Way

New York Times best-selling author of "The Shack," William Paul Young shares his inspiration behind the book and how it has allowed people to see their relationship with God in a new way. "The Shack" was initially written as a Christmas gift to his children on the train commuting to one of his three jobs, with no intention of publishing it. The book's success led to a motion picture starring Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Tim McGraw. However, the author's journey to success was riddled with a lifetime of sadness and mistakes. A victim of sexual abuse as a child, Paul says his quest for unconditional love drove him to have an affair that nearly tore his family apart. "I didn't confess? I got caught," Paul says of the destructive affair, a moment of exposure that served as a wake-up call for the husband and father of six. Paul says the biggest gift "The Shack" has given him is an invitation to hear other people's stories. Paul also discusses his thought-provoking and controversial book, "Lies We Believe About God."
