Moment #19: Oprah's Book Club

It's the little announcement that exploded into a worldwide phenomenon. On September 17, 1996, Oprah shared her love of books with the world, choosing Jacquelyn Mitchard's The Deep End of the Ocean as her first Oprah's Book Club selection. Between 1996 and 2011, Oprah picked 65 selections for the Original Oprah's Book Club. In June 2012, she launched the online, interactive Oprah's Book Club 2.0.
