Michelle Obama fans can officially start the countdown clock.
About Social Media Sunday, the former First Lady announced her first memoir, Becoming will be released on November 13. That gives her most passionate admirers exactly 261 days to print "Obama 2020". Shirts, how do some before storming bookstores.
"Writing by BECOMING was a deeply personal experience," she tweeted to her followers. "I'm talking about my roots and how a girl from the south side got her vote."
Writing by BECOMING was a very personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the south side has found her voice. I hope my trip inspires readers to find the courage to be whoever they want to be. I can not wait to tell my story. https://t.co/d7DxEG85NK

In a post on Instagram, Obama added that writing the book "has allowed me, first of all, time "The space to honestly reflect on the unexpected development of my life … I hope my trip inspires readers to find the courage to become what they want to be."
The volume of the book was one little mystery since the Obamas announced their joint publishing contract in 2017 – a negotiation that triggered an unprecedented bidding war allegedly exceeding $ 60 million for the former first pair.
Now Penguin Random House is preparing a reader for "an unusually intimate" reading in a lengthy contribution by the publisher:
In her memoirs, a work of deep thought and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, who recorded the experiences that shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as a leader balancing the demands of motherhood and work and her time at the world's most famous address.
The memoirs are Obama's second book, which she already published in 2012 American Grown: The History of the Kitchen Garden and Gardens of the White House .
After its release, Obama will go on an American and international accounting.
Barack Obama's fourth book is expected to be behind the scenes of his eight turbulent years in the White House.
Pengu Random House says it will donate a million books to First Book on behalf of Obama – a non-profit organization dedicated to providing "new books, study materials, and other essentials for needy children" – and in Washington, DC based companies Open eBooks.
