Happy 8th Birthday to Oprah Noodlemantra’s Book Club!

The Johnny Depp Zone is delighted to celebrate the 8th 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!

Our birthday card, showing Johnny rocking out with Keith Richards at the Rum Diary premiere afterparty in Manhattan a few nights ago, pays tribute to ONBC’s current book discussion, Keef’s award-winning autobiography Life. It’s a great time to stop by the ONBC forum and sample the discussion, if you aren’t already familiar with the Noodlemantras. Life is the 40th book read and discussed by ONBC during 8 lively years (two favorites returned for encores — The Rum Diary and The Libertine). We look forward to many more!

The Zone congratulates Liz and DITHOT on ONBC’s 8th birthday and thanks them for their dedication, enthusiasm, and outstanding leadership. Day in and day out, you always give us so much to be proud of on the Zone, as you celebrate Johnny Depp in your unique and insightful way. Thanks for helping us to appreciate Johnny, great writing, and life itself, more every day!
