Washington: Former first lady Michelle Obama today unveiled the book cover of her highly anticipated memoir 'BECOMING'.

The book is scheduled to be published globally on November 13.

 

Michelle selected the cover photo for her book jacket from a photo shoot that was done earlier this year in Washington by renowned portrait photographer Miller Mobley, publisher Penguin said in a statement.

The 54-year-old former first lady shared on her Instagram account four previously unpublished family photographs that illustrate moments in her personal journey of becoming the woman she is today.

"I'm thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING," Michelle said.

"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," she said.

 

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerising storytelling, Michelle invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped herfrom 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, Penguin said in a statement.

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 itin her own words and on her own terms, it said.

"Warm, wise, and revelatory, BECOMING is an unusually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations and whose story inspires us to do the same," the statement added.
