CHICAGO (AP) - The first week of the final season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will include a selection for Oprah’s Book Club.

A Harpo spokeswoman said Thursday that 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.

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.”

It’s not known if Winfrey’s latest pick will be her last on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which is set to premiere its 25th and final season on Sept. 13.
