Michelle Obama Reveals Cover of Highly Anticipated Memoir ‘Becoming’

Michelle Obama revealed the cover of her upcoming memoir Becoming on Thursday.

“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,” she wrote on Twitter. “Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own. #BECOMING.”

Crown Publishing said that the former first lady chose the cover photo herself.

“Mrs. Obama selected the cover photo for her book jacket from a photo shoot that was done earlier this year in Washington, DC, by renowned portrait photographer Miller Mobley,” the publisher revealed.

Obama announced in February that her “deeply personal” book will hit store shelves on Nov. 13.
