Hattie Shepherd leaves the Jim Crow South during the Great Migration for, hopefully, a better life in Philadelphia. The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, by Ayana Mathis, follows Hattie over five decades of hard life in raising nine children and one grandchild.
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is Oprah’s newest Book Club 2.0 choice. In addition to seeing her interview Ayana Mathis on Super Bowl Sunday, you can join the online discussion and see fabulously detailed book discussion materials on Oprah’s website.
