Her husband has already published two best-selling memoirs. Now it’s Michelle Obama’s turn to share her life story.
The former first lady announced Sunday that she’s publishing Becoming Michelle Obama, a book about “how a girl from the South Side found her voice,” on Nov. 13.
Former President Barack Obama penned Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope in 1995 and 2006. Michelle Obama wrote American Grown, about the White House garden, in 2012.
She tweeted, “Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience (and) 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.”
According to a news release from Penguin Random House, which is publishing Obama’s memoir, Becoming Michelle Obama will use “unerring honesty and lively wit” and cover “both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it — in her own words and on her own terms. … 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.”
Her book deal was announced last February.
