“The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me.”

As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.

In recent days, Obama has shared personal family photographs “that illustrate moments in her personal journey of becoming the woman she is today” on Instagram, according to her publisher’s press release.

Becoming chronicles Obama’s life “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,” the publisher said.

The memoir is slated for release on Nov. 13. It will be distributed in print and digital versions in the U.S. and Canada by the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House. It will also be released in 25 languages.

Obama herself will read the audio edition.
