Whether you followed her from her first show 25 years ago or just caught her last show on May 25, 2011, fans and supporters alike will rejoice as Oprah Winfrey takes to the stage once again. However, she won’t be doing it in Chicago; instead she and O experts will take over the Georgia World Congress Center on October 15 for O, The Oprah Magazine’s fifth annual O You! event.
The O You! event is a day dedicated to helping people live their best life. With an array of experts like Suze Orman, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Nate Berkus and of course, Oprah herself, it’s sure to be a memorable day full of fun, learning and interactive components.

Also, you’ll have the opportunity for your questions to be answered during the event by tweeting your questions using the hashtag (#askOYou) or by posting to the O You discussion board on Facebook.
