Michelle Obama is set to release her second book next month.
Becoming, A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice, is a companion to her bestselling memoir Becoming.
It will be published on November 19, 2019.
Featuring an intimate introduction by Mrs. Obama, the Becoming journal includes more than 150 inspiring questions and quotes that resonate with key themes in her memoir.
They are designed to help readers reflect on their personal and family history, their goals, challenges, and dreams, what moves them and brings them hope, and what future they imagine for themselves and their community.
Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice will also be published globally this autumn in more than 20 countries, with additional territories to be announced in due course.
In writing her memoir, Michelle Obama shared her own extraordinary journey to help create space for others to tell their stories and to give people the courage to discover the power of their own voice.
With the journal, she now provides readers with the encouragement to find value in their own personal journeys of becoming.
In the introduction to the journal, she says:
“I hope you’ll use this journal to write down your experiences, thoughts, and feelings, in all their imperfections, and without judgment….
"We don’t have to remember everything. But everything we remember has value.”
Since its publication on November 13, 2018, Mrs. Obama’s memoir Becoming has sold more than 11.5 million units worldwide across print, digital, and audio formats, including 7.5 million units in the U.S. and Canada alone, and has been published in 45 languages.
In the UK and Ireland, Becoming has sold 1.2 million copies in all formats.
A good book can do just about anything; from taking you on a wild and fantastical adventure to making you feel like an all-knowing super sleuth (if you figure out the killer twist).
