A little over a year into the world we now call Trump’s America, many are challenged in finding inspiration or guidance from a place of trust. Not for much longer, however.
Sunday night, former First Lady Michelle Obama took to Twitter to announce the release date of her upcoming memoir, Becoming:November 13, 2018.
“I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to be whoever they aspire to be,” she wrote. “I can’t wait to share my story.”

Becoming will tell the tale of her entire life, and will give readers insight into how she challenged what’s “normal” in this world and became the powerful woman she is known as today.
