[via press release from OWN]


Wild Hits #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers List for Second Straight Week

Oprah Winfrey's two hour interview with best-selling author of "Wild," Cheryl Strayed, will premiere on Emmy(R) Award-winning "Super Soul Sunday" July 22 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and will simulcast online worldwide via Oprah.com and Facebook.com/OWNtv.

"Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail," Winfrey's inaugural selection for Oprah's Book Club 2.0, has topped the New York Times Best Sellers list at #1 for the second consecutive week in hardcover nonfiction and #1 in e-book nonfiction. In this exclusive "Super Soul Sunday" interview, Winfrey invites Strayed to her California home to sit down and talk about her life and writing process.

"I admire Oprah Winfrey tremendously, and could not be more honored and thrilled that 'Wild' is the first selection for Oprah's Book Club 2.0," said Cheryl Strayed. "When she called me out of the blue and said, 'this is Oprah,' I was astonished. It was not a call I was expecting, and I will always remember her kind words about 'Wild.'"

In the deeply personal interview, Strayed talks about the events that led her to embark on an 1,100 mile hike up the Pacific Crest Trail, documented in "Wild." As a 26-year-old whose life hit rock-bottom after she lost her mother to cancer, Strayed's family had scattered, her marriage had ended, and she says she scarcely resembled the healthy, strong, woman she used to be. She knew she needed to make a radical change in her life, and decided to journey back to her true self - step by step - along the Pacific Crest Trail. "Wild" tells her story with blazing honesty and raw emotion, and she gives Winfrey the real scoop behind every breathtaking moment.
