Happy 7th Birthday to Oprah Noodlemantra’s Book Club!

The Johnny Depp Zone is delighted to celebrate the 7th birthday of Oprah Noodlemantra’s Book Club, the first such group ever founded to read works associated with or recommended by Johnny Depp. The first book ONBC read was Stephen King’s novella Secret Window, Secret Garden (also known as Two Past Midnight) — King’s work was chosen for ONBC’s debut because Johnny Depp had just finished filming his role as Mort Rainey in David Koepp’s adaptation of Secret Window. Liz posed ONBC’s first question about Secret Window, Secret Garden at two past midnight on November 1, 2003, and she and DeppintheHeartofTexas have been delighting and challenging us ever since!

ONBC is currently discussing Simone de Beauvoir’s memoir of her relationship with Nelson Algren, A Transatlantic Love Affair, which Johnny Depp is considering as a future film project for himself and Vanessa Paradis. ONBC will follow A Transatlantic Love Affair with Daniel Depp’s second novel about private detective David Spandau, Babylon Nights.

We congratulate Liz and DITHOT and thank them for their outstanding leadership and hard work for the past six years. Well done! We can’t wait to see what ONBC will read in the coming year — it’s always a fascinating journey.
