Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. 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.

According to the press release on the book's official website, the memoir will be published by Penguin Random House and released in 23 languages in addition to English. Mark your calendars, guys, Obama's sure-to-be bestseller will be here before you know it!
