Michelle Obama is writing a memoir which will come out right after the 2018 midterms. This is fueling speculation that she might run for president in 2020. Who else would the left be more excited about than another Obama?
The Associated Press reports:
Michelle Obama to release memoir in November
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.”
She and her husband, former President Barack Obama, last year reached a joint agreement with Penguin Random House for their respective books. The deal is believed to be well in excess of $30 million. “Becoming” will be released in the U.S. through the Crown Publishing Group, a Penguin Random House division that has published works by both Obamas.
Once the book comes out, expect weeks of media appearances by the former first lady. The media will lavish praise all over her.
