Michelle Obama’s Memoir To Be Released in November

Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, is due to hit stores November 13, Mrs. Obama reported in a Tweet on Sunday. The memoir will talk about her “roots”, and will also touch on her time in the White House, motherhood, and her campaign for healthy food and exercise.

Becoming, forthcoming from Crown, will be published simultaneously in 24 different languages, The New York Times reported. Additionally, there will be an audiobook that Mrs. Obama will narrate herself. And in keeping with Mrs. Obama’s campaign to educate children, she has reported that one million copies of the book will be donated to First Book, which seeks to provide equal education benefits to children.

Vulture reports that after the book’s release in November, Mrs. Obama will go on a global book tour. Dates and cities have not yet been released.
