Reading with Oprah: The Book Club that Changed America | Kathleen Rooney
6 posts | 1 read
Extensive research and an engaging narrative style untangle the myths and presuppositions surrounding the Oprah Book Club and reveal its complex and far-reaching cultural influence, confronting head-on how the club became a crucible for the heated clash between "high" and "low" literary taste, with the most extensive analysis yet of the Oprah Winfrey-Jonathan Franzen contretemps.

Love or hate the selections, she got American‘s to read more, highlighted lesser know authors, and helped make bookclubs cool 😎

Saw this at the check out line in ShopRite. About 13 pages of book recs. Think I'm going to get it from the library instead...

Alfoster So many good book recs in it!😍 2y

Got home and Oprah was in my mailbox! Love her magazine, especially the reading recommendations. I always flip there first. They are impressively diverse, and I pay attention to what is recommended and usually end up buying a few (if I haven't already). It's quite a victorious feeling when I'm like, "Yeah, I've read that already" ??. This month's issue is all about BOOKS! Glorious books!!

Who else subscribes to her magazine!?

LauraBrook I used to, and now just get the occasional issue. But I'll be getting this one for sure! 👍🏼 2y
Lola Thanks for posting! This issue is clearly a must-get...right up there with The New Yorker Summer Fiction issue http://www.newyorker.com/magazine 2y
minkyb I usually go to the library and read it but I will want to own this issue. Thanks. 🤗 2y
