Oprah's Book Club

From 1996 until 2010 Oprah Winfrey selected books for her audience to read and then discussed them on her show. Her selections instantly rocketed up the best seller lists. In 2012 she relaunched her book club as "Oprah's Book Club 2.0." All of these titles are located in the Adult Fiction section of the Library unless otherwise noted.
