Oprah to Write Memoir, Start Book Imprint

The Life You Want will be out in 2017.

Oprah has signed a deal with Flatiron Books to publish her memoir, The Life You Want. The book is expected to hit stores January 2017.

As part of the deal, Oprah is doing something we’re kind of surprised she hasn’t already done — launching her own book imprint. The untitled publishing brand will focus on nonfiction titles.

“We’re deeply honored to publish The Life You Want, which is such a remarkable combination of Oprah’s life story and the lessons we can all draw from it for our personal growth” said Flatiron’s publisher and president Bob Miller, in a statement. “We’re also thrilled to give a home to Oprah’s imprint titles. We all know how extraordinary Oprah’s instincts are when it comes to choosing books, instincts borne of her lifelong love of reading and the power of the written word.”
