Flatiron Books on Wednesday announced that Keys’ More Myself will be released Nov. 5 through Winfrey’s An Oprah Book imprint. Flatiron is calling the memoir a “360-degree perspective” on her life, from her childhood in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan to her spectacular, Grammy-winning rise.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Keys said in a statement that she was “ecstatic” to share her life story, alongside her “sister, mentor and friend Oprah.” Winfrey said in a statement she was a longtime Keys fan who felt “honored” to publish her book.
The memoir is available for preorder.
I can NOT believe this is happening! My sister, mentor & the QUEEN herself helped me share my journey! Thank you @Oprah for letting me share my truth as the 1st release of your new book imprint & for challenging me to become MORE MYSELF. —- https://t.co/OtTdrYYt9W @flatironbooks pic.twitter.com/e5GtMoW88N
