Oprah Winfrey is starting her own book imprint, kicking it off with an inspirational memoir.

Flatiron Books announced Thursday that Winfrey’s “The Life You Want” is scheduled for January 2017 and will show how “anyone can put their life on a new trajectory.” Winfrey’s imprint doesn’t have a name yet, but will feature several nonfiction works each year. Winfrey has already generated numerous best-sellers in the past 20 years through her TV and online book club choices.

Winfrey said in a statement that she hopes her story “inspires other people to live the highest, fullest expression of themselves.” She resisted writing a memoir in the past, cancelling a planned release in 1993.

 “What I Know for Sure,” a collection of her “O” magazine columns, was published by Flatiron in 2014.
