Here’s some news to brighten up your Monday. Michelle Obama has written a memoir! The former FLOTUS announced the news on Twitter yesterday.
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. https://t.co/d7DxEG85NK

The bio is described as “an usually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations” in a statement by the publisher.
The only bad news? It doesn’t drop until November 13. In the meantime, feel free to distract yourself by reading an excerpt of this inspiring and insightful talk Obama gave in Toronto a few months ago.
