Obama shared the news on her social media pages, linking to the book’s official website.
“ Becoming ” will be released on the November 13, 2018.
The book will cover her childhood, her life as a working mother, and as the First Lady of the United States.
Describing the book, she wrote: “Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.”
Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life.
In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others.
I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story.
