Michelle Obama will release her memoir, Becoming, on Nov. 13, the former first lady announced Sunday.

In a statement, Obama said writing the book "has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life." The book will cover everything from her childhood in Chicago's South Side to her time at the White House, and will be published in two dozen languages. Obama will also narrate the audio version of Becoming, and is expected to go on a publicity tour in the U.S. and abroad.
