(AP) -- NEW YORK -- Michelle Obama's memoir, one of the most highly anticipated books in recent years, is coming out Nov. 13.
The former first lady tweeted Sunday that the book, to come out a week after the 2018 midterm elections, is called "Becoming."
"Writing 'Becoming' has been a deeply personal experience," she said in a statement. "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."
