Good morning,

Michelle Obama will release a memoir in November. The memoir will be named “Becoming” and is said to be released in 24 different languages on Nov. 13. 

The former first lady tweeted about the announcement, saying, “Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. 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. I can’t wait to share my story.” 

Ellen DeGeneres also tweeted about the book, saying, “Excited to see how many chapters are about me.” 

While it’s unlikely that Obama has multiple chapters about her life dedicated to Ellen, we’ll just have to hold our breath until November to know for sure.
