Will Oprah Pick McDonald Autobiography for Her Book Club

By Holly Wood
Norris McDonald
The first week of the final season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will include a selection for Oprah's Book Club. Winfrey will announce her 64th and latest pick during a live episode airing on Sept. 17. That would be 14 years to the day that Winfrey announced her first book club selection — Jacquelyn Mitchard's "The Deep End of the Ocean" — on Sept. 17, 1996.

Rumor has it that Oprah could pick "Diary Of An Environmentalist: Norris McDonald Autobiography." Who knows? Stranger things have happened.

Winfrey's book club choices have vaulted to best-seller lists and instant fame. Her last choice was author Uwem Akpan's short story collection "Say You're One Of Them." "The Oprah Winfrey Show" is set to premiere its 25th and final season on Sept. 13, 2010. (MSNBC, 9/3/2010)
