A book detailing the life and time of former American First Lady Michelle Obama will be released November this year.

The book is titled ‘BECOMING’ and was written by Michelle herself.

The book will be published in North America on November 13 and will appear simultaneously in 24 languages worldwide.

In making the announcement on Sunday, Penguin Random House publishers’ chief executive Markus Dohle called Michelle Obama “one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era.”

In an unusual gesture, one million copies are to be donated in the Obama family’s name to “children in need,” the publisher’s statement said.

“Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience,” Obama tweeted Sunday.

“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.”

Michelle’s story is indeed inspiring. She grew up in a modest Chicago neighbourhood, and defied a teacher’s advice that she was “setting (her) sights too high,” and went ahead to apply and get accepted into Princeton University, before proceeding to earn a Harvard Law School degree.

She met Barack Obama while he was an intern at a Chicago law firm that Michelle worked. Michelle then became Barack’s adviser, and the pair fell in lover and were soon married.

She became his closest confidante during his political rise.
