Oprah Winfrey brought her new show “Oprah’s Book Club,” streaming on Apple TV+, to the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant in Harpswell last month to meet with the author of her November book club pick, “Olive, Again.”

Elizabeth Strout met with the media mogul in front of a live studio audience to discuss the sequel to “Olive Kitteridge,” according to the Press Herald. “Olive Kitteridge,” released in 2008, won a Pulitzer Prize and was a New York Times Best Seller.


In a social media post, Winfrey said that she needed to visit Maine after reading “Olive, Again,” part of which takes place in Maine, according to The Press Herald.

Winfrey is also putting Maine lobster rolls on the map. She admitted she had never had a lobster roll before and shared her experience on Instagram.

“I think that Popeyes’ chicken sandwich has some competition,” she said.
