Michelle Obama promises release of 'unusually intimate' memoir

Former First Lady Michelle Obama announced the release of her memoir in November called “Becoming.”

Obama said of the book:

“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. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. 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.”

The book will be published in 24 languages. The release date is Nov. 13.
