Two wonderful biographies are included in this weeks new acquisitions, one from Oprah Winfrey and the other from Gail Sheehy. Both of these women are icons in the movement to live your best life. Sheehy’s memoir discusses her own “Passages” and Oprah opines on what she now knows for sure about living.
