This is such a sweet image in such a tough time for the entire family.
You get a memoir, and you get a memoir!
Have you ever wondered what it's like to be Oprah Winfrey? Well if you have, you're in luck as the former talk show host has just signed a deal to write an autobiography!
Earlier this week, Deadline reported that the 61-year-old was close to signing an eight-figure deal with Flatiron Books – a division of Macmillan — to write about her life.
Well now it's official as Flatiron announced that Winfrey has signed with them to release her book titled The Life You Want, which is set for publication in January of 2017!
The Emmy winner released a statement about the exciting news saying:
"All of my experiences, even the painful ones, have been there to teach me something about life. I'm still learning and I hope my story inspires other people to live the highest, fullest expression of themselves."
Bob Miller, the president and publisher of Flatiron, also addressed the recent deal stating:
"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. 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."
The New York-based publisher also announced that Oprah's memoir would be the first title in a book imprint — a trade name under a publisher that publishes books to a certain audience — that has yet to be named.
We're so excited to check this out and we're sure it will be AH-Mazing as is everything Oprah touches!
