On Sunday, October 15, Oprah Winfrey held a gospel brunch to promote the release of her new book, Wisdom of Sundays: Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations. What is the book about?

“It’s a book about awakening your spirit,” she wrote. “Living with intention. Discovering the power of forgiveness. And finding fulfillment, love, and, yes, connection.”

It’s also inspired by the conversations Winfrey has had with a wide variety of guests over the years on her popular OWN series, Super Soul Sunday. 

“I’ve always believed the knowledge and ideas shared each week on the show would make a powerfully transcendent book, Winfrey said. “I believed it even more strongly after going through more than 200 hours of Super Soul tapes in search of the most impactful sparks of brilliance from the men and women who’ve sat in my backyard in Santa Barbara and shared their wisdom.”

So to celebrate the release of her book, Winfrey invited some of the people who she’s conversed with on Super Soul Sunday, along with a who’s who of other big stars and influencers, to her home in Montecito, Calif. Guests included Angela Bassett, Kerry Washington, Ava Duvernay, Niecy Nash, Common, Andra Day, Julia Roberts, Bebe Winans, Erica Campbell and many, many more.

Check out pictures from the star-studded brunch below and be sure to pick up Wisdom of Sundays when it hits shelves Tuesday, October 17.
