Published

Michelle Obama



First African American First Lady, Michelle Obama, has announced the release date of her memoir titled “Becoming.”

It will be published by Crown, a Penguin Random House imprint, which acquired world publication rights of it along with a book by former President Barack Obama in February.

“Becoming” will be released on November 13, 2018.

In a Twitter and Instagram post by Michelle, the ex-first lady described the emotions attached to “BECOMING.”

She said the book reflected the unexpected trajectory of her life and tells the journey of how a young girl from the South side of Chicago found her footing.

She wrote,

“Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, 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. Please visit the website in my bio for more information.”

Penguin Random House also gave a short insight of the book on www.becomingmichelleobama.com.

“IN A LIFE filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African-American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments.

“Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

“In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama 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 address.

“With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, 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.”
