Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be releasing her highly anticipated memoir, “Becoming,” November 13. Fans of Michelle, may see her in a city near you as she will be embarking on an international tour to promote “Becoming.”
The publisher, Penguin Random House, said in a statement that the book is “an unusually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations — and whose story inspires us to do the same.”
The book will be printed in 24 languages and sell for $32.50 in the United States, the company said.
According to the statement, Obama’s book “invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her — from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous addresses.”
In a tweet, Obama said writing the book was a “deeply personal experience.” The publisher said the book promises to be “warm, wise and revelatory.”
Her plan is to donate one million copies of the book in the Obama family’s name to a Washington-based nonprofit that is dedicated to “promoting equal access to education by providing new books, learning materials and other essentials to children in need in the U.S. and Canada.”
We are exciting to read this memoir debuting late fall! Former President Barack Obama is also writing a memoir to be published by Penguin Random House, which is expected to come out sometime this year.
