Michelle Obama’s highly anticipated memoir is almost here.
On Sunday, the former first lady announced on social media that her new book, Becoming, will hit bookstores on Nov. 13.
“Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience,” she wrote. “I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be.”
Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the South Side found her voice. 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. https://t.co/d7DxEG85NK

Penguin Random House imprint Crown Publishing Group released a statement about the book, that said, in part:
“Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.”
Last March, news broke that the Obamas signed a joint deal with the publisher to release their memoirs to the tune of $65 million, according to the Financial Times.
