Oprah Winfrey can claim one more honor among many: she's the first ever recipient of the PEN/Faulkner foundation's Literary Champion Award.
The award was created this year to celebrate someone's lifetime of contributions to literacy and their work inspiring younger readers and writers, reports the Associated Press.
With those criteria, it was perhaps obvious that Winfrey — who launched her public book club in 1996 — would be honored.
Winfrey will receive the award during a virtual ceremony on May 2.
