It should come as no surprise that former first lady Michelle Obama is just as active in her life after the White House as she was during the eight years her husband Barack Obama was president. The former FLOTUS lead the change for reforms on education, nutrition, poverty, women’s rights and Veteran’s rights during her time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and now she’s staying busy by putting her life’s work into a book. Just announced, Michelle Obama plans to release her memoir Becoming on November 13. Consider our copy pre-ordered.
Announcing the book Sunday on Twitter, Obama said that 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.”

Obama has set up an official website for her upcoming memoir, with the book’s description acting as a reminder of what a badass the former first lady was, and still is today. “In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African-American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.”
Yeah, that deserves a memoir.
The description goes on to say that Obama will include stories that shaped her life from childhood to adulthood, including balancing her work life with motherhood, as well as revealing her biggest triumphs and disappointments.
Of course, there’s some juicy stuff we’re hoping the book includes as well, like what she and Barack really felt when Donald Trump won the election.
What celebs made her star struck.
What exercises she does for her #armgoals.
How to find a partner who treats you like the Queen you are.
And how to appropriately get your groove on at a black-tie event.
Of course, we know Obama won’t spill too much tea, because she’s #classy at all times, but a little inside scoop would be nice.
Because we still want to pretend that it’s 2016 and the Obamas reside in the White House, Michelle will embark on an international tour in support of the book and more than likely, to give out reassuring handshakes and hugs to the millions who are still adjusting to the current administration. It’s gonna be a busy tour.
Expect this book to make some serious bank by the end of the year.
