On Thursday, former first lady, Michelle Obama, unveiled the book cover of her memoir ‘BECOMING’. The book will be published globally on November 13.
She selected the cover picture for her book jacket from a photoshoot that was done earlier this year in Washington. Penguin Random House is the publisher of the memoir. The shoot was executed by portrait photographer Miller Mobley, as per publisher Penguin’s statement.
The former first lady took to her Instagram account for the reveal, captioning her post with an inspiring message:
“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.”
As per Penguin Random House’s statement, in her memoir, which includes storytelling and reflection, Michelle invites readers into her world, documenting the experiences that have shaped her from her childhood. The book also reveals her experiences from the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work. Her memoir also registers her time spent at The White House.
“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.
The former first lady also shared four important pictures of her life on Instagram before unveiling her book cover.
