“Oprah calling me on the phone, out of the blue, to tell me that she loved my novel and had decided to select it for her book club was so unbelievably exciting that I’m pretty sure I’m still in shock,” said Napolitano. “She has done so much to amplify authors and their work. The writers and books she has featured in her club reads like a list of my literary heroes, and to be included among them is an unbelievable honor.” 

Why Oprah Started Her Book CLub 

The book club was formed in 1996 and almost three decades later, it has reached the 100 milestone. Oprah’s Book Club is easily the most popular and has helped dozens of books reach new audiences and become a best-seller.

“The whole reason I started a book club was to uplift and inspire people,” says Oprah. “A great book not only enhances your life experience but can also change you. Our 100th selection does just that—you cannot read it without opening up, forgiving, seeing yourself and the relationships we weave in a new way. You come away more connected to life.”
