Michelle Obama to release “deeply personal” memoir in November

Michelle Obama's Memoir

We all know the former first lady has those Michelle Obama arms — they’re the arms that kept Barack steady for two presidential terms and pushed us to get active. And now, to get us reading, she’s releasing a memoir entitled, “Becoming.”

In Feb. 2017, word broke out that the Obamas signed a joint book deal with Penguin Random House worth $65 million — but Barack has yet to disclose information about his upcoming memoir.

Michelle’s memoir “Becoming” is set for release on Nov. 13 through Crown Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House, which she announced via Twitter Sunday night. This will be Michelle’s second book — her first, “American Grown,” was published in 2012.

The book will be “published simultaneously in 24 languages around the world,” Crown Publishing wrote in a statement. “Becoming,” which is described as a “deeply personal reckoning,” will also be released as an audio book narrated by the former first lady.

Michelle’s memoir will discuss her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, her time in the White House and … Ellen?

“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,” the website of Michelle’s memoir reads, “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.”

“I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be,” she wrote on Twitter. “I can’t wait to share my story.”
