"Oprah Winfrey's book club is accepting new members."
"The talk-show megastar, whose endorsements have launched dozens of best sellers, said Wednesday that she is reviving the club after almost a year's hiatus. But this time, club members will read the classics."
"Shakespeare, Steinbeck, Faulkner, Hemingway. Those are the authors she's reading now — "It's a gift to myself," she says — and they'll likely make the list. The new round of reading tentatively is titled "Traveling with the Classics"; Winfrey will visit the settings of the authors' works." (from USA Today via Waterboro Lib Blog)
