Oprah Winfrey's new book imprint has an easy name to remember.

She's calling it An Oprah Book, Flatiron Books told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

A division of Macmillan, Flatiron first announced in 2015 that it would work with Winfrey on a line of non-fiction books, personally selected by her.

The first release, Winfrey's Food, Health and Happiness cookbook, is coming out on January 3.

The second book, also announced on Wednesday and scheduled for 2018, is Maria Smilios' The Black Angels: The Untold Story of the Nurses Who Helped Cure Tuberculosis.

The book tells of 300 black nurses who helped prevent a public-health crisis.

In a statement issued through Flatiron, Winfrey said The Black Angels was a story of heroism and achievement that needed to be shared.
