Oprah's Book Club

The following are picks from Oprah's Book Club. A few times each year, Oprah announces the title of the book to be featured in Oprah's Book Club. Lately, Oprah has been selecting works of classic literature. In the first few years of her book club, Oprah would invite the author and selected viewers to dinner to discuss the book. The author and viewers would then later appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss the book with the audience. During its peak The Oprah Book Club would send sales of a book soaring as readers rushed to purchase it. More information on The Oprah Winfrey Show can be found online at: oprah.com.
