Oprah Winfrey picks prison memoir for her book club

NEW YORK — Oprah Winfrey's next book club pick is a memoir about a wrongful murder conviction and the long fight to win acquittal.

Winfrey's "O'' magazine and OWN network told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she has selected Anthony Ray Hinton's "The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row." Winfrey's interview with Hinton will air Sunday on OWN and her magazine will highlight the book in its July issue. In a promotional video on Tuesday, Winfrey called the book a compelling read with the power of an "epic novel."

Published in March, "The Sun Does Shine" tells of Hinton's nearly 30 years behind bars. He was released in 2015.
