Elie Wiesel’s "Night" Amazon’s Number One Bestseller

by Roger Alford

The announcement that Oprah Winfrey has selected Elie Wiesel’s Night as its book of the month has catapulted it to Amazon’s number one bestseller. I am thrilled that Oprah Winfrey has chosen this book, which was one of the most significant literary experiences of my young adulthood.
According to this article in the New York Times, “Winfrey said she plans to travel with Wiesel to Auschwitz next month, and her show will have a high school essay contest on Wiesel’s book. Fifty winners will be flown to Chicago, where her show is based, for a taping with the author, Winfrey said.”
Kudos to Oprah Winfrey. Her book selection will change lives, with millions introduced to a first-hand account of the horror of the Holocaust.
