On Sunday, former First Lady Michelle Obama took to social media to share a glimpse of what her first memoir, "Becoming," will entail, and announce its release date in November.
Obama said in a Twitter post that writing the book has been a "deeply personal experience."
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

Obama included a link to a website about the book stating the Nov. 13 release date.
In an Instagram post, she also said writing the memoir "has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life."
Along with writing about her upbringing, the Princeton University and Harvard Law School graduate writes about her time in the White House as the first Black first lady, motherhood and her public health campaign.
Penguin Random House, publisher of "Becoming," said that 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."
The book is to be published simultaneously in 24 languages around the world and will be released in the U.S. and Canada through the publisher's Crown Publisher Group, according to Reuters. Obama will also read for the audio edition and there will be an international book tour, which will be announced at a later date.
Penguin Random House landed a deal to publish both the former first lady's memoir and former President Barack Obama's. After a bidding war, the company reportedly agreed to pay $60 million to the former first couple for their books.
Barack Obama's three previous books — "Dreams of My Father," "The Audacity of Hope" and "Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters" — were published by the same company.
The Obamas plan to donate a "significant portion of their author proceeds to charity," including the Obama Foundation, the publisher said in a statement in March.
