NEW YORK — Add another book for possible holiday gifts: Oprah Winfrey's latest 2.0 selection.

Winfrey announced on Wednesday that she has chosen Ayana Mathis' debut novel, “The Twelve Tribes of Hattie,” for her book club. Publisher Alfred A. Knopf moved up publication from early next year to this week, and an author interview will be aired on Feb. 3 on the “Super Soul Sunday” program on Winfrey's OWN network.

“Twelve Tribes” is the story of a teenager's journey from Mississippi to Philadelphia in the 1920s and the large family she ends up raising.

“I can't remember when I read anything that moved me in quite this way, besides the work of Toni Morrison,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey revived her club, now called Oprah's Book Club 2.0, this year with Cheryl Strayed's memoir “Wild.” Published by Knopf, “Wild” has sold about 500,000 copies, most of that after Winfrey's announcement.
