Don’t call it a memoir: Alicia Keys to release her “journey” “More Myself” on Oprah’s imprint

Courtesy Flatiron BooksAlicia Keys is teaming up with Oprah Winfrey to share her story.

This fall, via Oprah’s book imprint, “An Oprah Book,” Alicia is releasing More Myself, a memoir which she prefers to call a “journey.”  Alicia and Oprah shared the news in a video on Wednesday.

In the comments on the video, Alicia wrote, “I can NOT believe this is happening…My sister, mentor, guide and the QUEEN herself Ms. Oprah helped me share my journey with you! And it’s finally here! I could not be more grateful for her endless support and light and love.”

Alicia added, “Thank you, Ms. O for the opportunity to share my truth as the first release of your new book imprint…our messages are similar: Now, more than ever, it’s time to continue to honor ourselves by walking more unrelentingly in our authenticity, no matter what! This is one of my greatest lessons and one I hope becomes easier for all of us.”

The book is due November 5, and it’s described as “part autobiography, part narrative documentary,” in which Alicia reveals her journey “not only through her own candid recounting, but also through vivid recollections from those who have walked alongside her.”

“The result is a 360-degree perspective on Alicia’s path, from her girlhood in Hell’s Kitchen and Harlem, to the process of self-discovery she’s still navigating,” continues the description.

“In More Myself, Alicia shares her quest for truth — about herself, her past, and her shift from sacrificing her spirit to celebrating her worth.”
