By

Oprah just announced her latest Oprah’s Book Club pick! It’s Olive, Again by Elizabeth Strout. Whether you’ve been reading along with Oprah Winfrey and her book club for years or are just looking for a good book to read this fall, Olive, Again may be exactly the book you’re looking for. Interestingly enough, Olive, Again is actually a sequel to Elizabeth Strout’s 2008 novel Olive Kitteridge. So, do you have to read Olive Kitteridge before reading Olive, Again?

Olive Kitteridge is actually a collection of 13 interwoven short stories that come together to create a portrait of the titular character, as well as several other people who live in the small coastal town of Crosby, Maine.
