Oprah just announced the official selection of Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 – a fully interactive, online community for people who love reading.
Ms. Winfrey is expected to make several book selections each year. And for her first pick, she has chosen “Wild,” by Cheryl Strayed, a nonfiction retelling of the author’s epic hike of the Pacific Crest Trail that was published in March by Knopf.
While calling the new version Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, Ms. Winfrey will resuscitate many of the familiar markers of its first incarnation, including the sticker on the jacket of print books that proudly designates the title as sanctioned by Ms. Winfrey. (By Tuesday, bookstores around the country are expected to display copies of “Wild” with the Oprah seal.)
