Our Forever First Lady Michelle Obama Drops Cover For Upcoming Memoir “Becoming”

May 24, 2018  |  


Former First Lady (but our forever First Lady) Michelle Obama just dropped the cover for her upcoming memoir entitled “Becoming.” The 54-year-old is rather “becoming” in a white off-the-shoulder top, displaying the best Colgate smile, with skin and hair on never-ending fleek.

According to Crown Publishing, Obama chose the cover from a photo shoot done earlier this year in Washington, D.C. by portrait photographer Miller Mobley.

Besides noticing how great she looks on the cover, the content of the book is what she wants us to really pay attention to. On Twitter, she shared that the book should inspire us all to reflect on our own stories because that’s what we will always have.

“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. #BECOMING,” she posted.

Available on Nov. 13, 2018, “Becoming” will invite us into the story of how Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama came into her own. We will get to know more intimate details about her life growing up on the south side of Chicago; balancing work and motherhood; and of course, what it was like being the First Lady of the United States of America. Fingers crossed she will get all the way real about what it meant to be the first black First Lady.

Leading up to the book reveal, she shared four previously unpublished photos from back in the day that led to her “becoming” who she is today.

Considering how amazing of a person she is, I am very curious to know more backstory about how she blossomed and continues to blossom. Just from the photos alone, she was blessed with great parents, opportunity, an equal partner in Barack, and of course, a lot of love was showered on her in all aspects of her life.

When the book is published (both hard copy and audio book), she will go on a tour to promote it both domestically and internationally. Will you be online or in line to cop it?
