Everything Oprah touches immediately turns to eight figures, and now that includes a possible book deal. According to, publishers have been in a bidding war to nab the rights to the media mogul's memoir, with Flatiron Books the official winner.

The company has set a January 2017 publish date for the book, which will chronicle Winfrey's remarkable life and career. Though the talk show queen has co-written several books, including 2014's What I Know for Sure, this will be her first true and definitive memoir.
