Michelle Obama's highly anticipated memoir, titled BECOMING, will be released on November 13, 2018, CEO of Penguin Random House Markus Dohle announced Sunday.

Details: In the book, Obama dives into everything from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, to her years juggling her work as an executive with the responsibilities of being a new mom, to her eight years as First Lady.

“Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life ... 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.”
