Michelle Obama's Memoir 'Becoming' to Drop this Year

“Writing 'Becoming' has been a deeply personal experience,” said the former First Lady in a statement

Former First lady Michelle Obama on Monday said she can not wait to soon share her first memoir BECOMING, which is a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling.

"It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life", she said on Instagram about the book.

"Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience", Obama, who previously wrote 2012's American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, said in a social media post.

The book will be released simultaneously in 24 languages worldwide, according to a statement from its book's publisher, Penguin Random House.

And while Michelle is typically forthcoming about her life and works, in the past year since leaving the White House, the former first lady of the U.S. has given few clues on the content of her book, other than stating it will be "inspirational".

First lady memoirs generally sell well, and Michelle Obama has never shared a lengthy background. The memoir will be released on November 13, 2018.

"I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be", she concluded. Her husband, former President Barack Obama, is set to publish a new memoir in the spring of 2019.

The former first couple past year negotiated a deal with Penguin Random House, reportedly worth more than US$60 million (RM235 million) for books by both Obamas. "I can't wait to share my story".

The book will be published simultaneously in 24 languages, from Swedish to Arabic, and Michelle Obama expects to promote Becoming in the United States and overseas. It will also appear in audio format, read by the author.

Since departing the White House in January 2017, the family has lived part-time at their Washington, D.C., home.
