Former First Lady Michelle Obama has captured headlines today with her announcement that she will be releasing her new memoir, entitled “Becoming,” on November 13.
“Writing ‘Becoming’ has been a deeply personal experience,” she wrote on Twitter.
Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the South Side found her voice. 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. https://t.co/d7DxEG85NK

Per Obama’s publisher, Crown, the memoir will “touch on Ms. Obama’s time in the White House, motherhood and her public health campaign and more.”
The book will be released in 24 languages and the audio version will be narrated by Michelle herself. The former First Lady also announced that one million copies will be donated to First Book, a nonprofit organization that provides reading materials to children.
With the Trump administration decimating the level of the national discourse, Michelle’s book will be a welcome return to normalcy, if only temporarily.
