    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    What did you love best about The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)?

    I felt like this book was very well written. I went into the book knowing nothing about the story, and was amazed how well it is crafted. This really showed me a different kind of life that I have never been properly exposed to. There are so many horrific parts in the book that enraged me, and made me grateful for the day and age we live in now. Truly an enlightening book. Bravo.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)?

    I think the part when Six is shipped from home, and makes such a name for himself is the most memorable for me. I thought it was very ironic that he was curing people, giving them life, when he was so depressed and lifeless himself. Also near the end of the book Hattie refers to Six as "lost", that he was going to be a troubled soul forever. This was sad to me, because I feel like nobody is lost, with the right support anybody can get better.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This narrator was perfect for this book, because she brought the characters to life with the hint of accent.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of Bossypants is much better than print version, because Tina is actually narrating the text. She talks like she is having a conversation with you. I am not much of an autobiography reader, so I was hesitant. However, the entire book is hilarious and engaging. I listened to the entire book in one sitting, I could not walk away!
