Oprah Winfrey will be releasing a collection of her magazine columns this fall and the book will be titled “What I Know for Sure” – the same name as her popular  column.

Winfrey has written the column for O, the Oprah Magazine the past 14 years.

“The essays offer a rare, powerful, and intimate glimpse into Oprah’s inner life – her thoughts, struggles, and dreams – while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves," the publisher Flatiron Books (an imprint of Macmillan), which will be releasing the book, said in a statement. "Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in 'What I Know For Sure' shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again.”

Winfrey will write an introduction for the book and, according to industry newsletter Shelf Awareness, the essays she wrote for the magazine will have been edited for "What I Know for Sure."

“What I Know for Sure” will be released on Sept. 2.

What is the Monitor difference? Tackling the tough headlines – with humanity. Listening to sources – with respect. Seeing the story that others are missing by reporting what so often gets overlooked: the values that connect us. That’s Monitor reporting – news that changes how you see the world.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
