20 Years Ago Today, a Woman Started a Book Club

Got any guesses who that woman was?

Oprah.

And while your own book club might not change the country’s attitude towards reading, Oprah’s did.  You book club might not make an author’s career, but Oprah’s does.  Your book club might use Oprah’s picks as things to avoid or as things to consider, but this is one time where someone with great power used it well.  Thanks, Oprah, for reminding us that reading something together and then talking about it together is good for us in all sorts of ways.

And YOU can read a book, and YOU can read a book, and YOU can read a book!
