Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for May 2023. 

Reese Witherspoon selected Did You Hear About Kitty Karr? by Crystal Smith Paul

The novel's title character is a white actress who leaves her entire estate to three Black sisters, prompting hard questions from the outside world as well as from within the family.

Jenna Bush Hager picked Chain Gang All Stars by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

The book imagines a world in which America's private prison industry has launched an entertainment program featuring inmates who fight for freedom — in death matches.

Good Morning America chose The Nigerwife by Vanessa Walter.

The title character is a young woman who left London to marry a wealthy Nigerian man ... only to go missing, prompting her aunt to launch an investigation.

You can read an excerpt of The Nigerwife in GMA's announcement of its selection.

And Oprah Winfrey announced that The Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese is her 101st book club pick.

The book is a family saga, set along the coast of southern India, under the shadow of a curse: each generation features at least one drowning death.
