Michelle Obama Launches 10-City Tour For Her New Book That Has Been Published in 24 Languages!

Becoming By Michelle Obama

In her soon-to-be released memoir entitled Becoming, Former First Lady Michelle Obama talks about having miscarriage, and why she could never forgive President Trump. The book will be released on November 13th in the U.S. and Canada in print and digital formats, and an audio edition of the book, read by her, will also be issued in digital and physical formats. She will also soon kick off a 10-city book tour that will feature various moderators including Oprah Winfrey, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Reese Witherspoon.
The book will be published simultaneously in 24 languages around the world. Some of the languages include Spanish, German, Portuguese, Danish, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Simplified Chinese, and more.

The memoir is a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling. 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.

With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.
