NEW YORK -- Add another book for possible holiday gifts: Oprah Winfrey's latest "2.0" selection.

Winfrey announced Wednesday that she has chosen a debut novel for her book club, "The Twelve Tribes of Hattie," by Ayana Mathis. An author interview will be aired Feb. 3 on Winfrey's OWN network. In a statement, Winfrey likened Mathis' book to the fiction of Toni Morrison. Published this week by Alfred A. Knopf, "Twelve Tribes" tells of a teenager's journey from Mississippi to Philadelphia in the 1920s and the large family she ends up raising.
