      Following some minor Twitter drama, Oprah’s Book Club has dropped its March pick, My Dark Vanessa, Publishers Lunch reported earlier this week. The novel by Kate Elizabeth Russell became the subject of controversy on Twitter back in January, when Latinx writer Wendy Ortiz took to the platform to note certain similarities between Russell’s forthcoming novel, Author: Kayla Kibbe. In Where has Oprah taken us, The Religious Influence of the World’s Most Famous Woman, Stephen Mansfield looks in to Oprah and her life as a spiritual being. The book starts out innocently enough, telling of Oprah’s early life and how her mother didn’t know who her father was, but decided that it was Vernon Winfrey.
