Proceeds from Oprah Winfrey’s new book are helping fund the Oprah Winfrey Boys and Girls Club of Kosciusko and Attala County.

Winfrey announced the book, The Path Made Clear, Tuesday afternoon in a video posted to both her Twitter and Instagram accounts.

“I believe that everybody has a purpose and a calling and I think this book will actually help you in clarity about finding that,” states Winfrey. “I’ve talked to some of the world’s leading thought leaders about finding your path and making it clear.”

At the end of the video, Winfrey, who lived in Kosciusko until she was 6, states that the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club in Kosciusko.

“There are a lot of kids that are trying to find their own way, and so all of my proceeds from The Path Made Clear goes  [sic] to the Boys & Girls Club of Kosciusko, Mississippi.”

The Oprah Winfrey Boys and Girls Club of Kosciusko opened its doors in September 2006. The 32,000-square foot facility was made possible by the generous efforts of Winfrey and her foundation.

“Oprah has continued to give from day one,” said Ricky Hood, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of East Mississippi. “Kosciusko remains a special place for her and she shows that through her donations.”

Hood says the proceeds from the book sales will go toward upgrades and repairs at the facility.

The Oprah Winfrey Boys and Girls Club of Kosciusko and Attala County is located at 500 Knox Rd. in Kosciusko.
