Due to its popularity, Holland America is now bringing O’s Reading Room to all of its 14 ships around the world as part of special programming developed via partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine.
By May, passengers on all cruise ships regardless of region will have the chance to read the latest book club selection as well as participate in onboard discussions.
The first novel going fleetwide by award-winning author Tayari Jones, “An American Marriage”, was recently announced as Oprah’s Book Club latest selection. Guests onboard Holland America ships will share the experience with millions of readers.
Tayari Jones is due to join Holland America’s March 3, 2018, "O, The Oprah Magazine’s Adventure of Your Life Cruise” to Caribbean aboard ms Nieuw Amsterdam. She will embark with a collection of magazine’s visionaries and editors who will share stories, inspire passengers and impart their knowledge via special programming.
On non-theme voyages, passengers who are interested in participating can bring “An American Marriage” onboard. Book club discussions are led by a staff member, and selections are changed periodically throughout the year.
