Michelle Obama has a new book on the way! Our Forever First Lady announced that her second book “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times” is set to be released this fall. This book comes after her best-selling memoir “Becoming.” She went on her Instagram to make the announcement via video, “I can’t believe it’s been a few years since I published my memoir ‘Becoming.’ And in that time a lot has happened. We’ve seen a global pandemic. We’ve seen an insurrection, a rising tide of hate and bigotry and intolerance, and a whole lot more.” Mrs. Obama went on to say, “And it’s often left me feeling out of balance. I don’t know about you, I felt vulnerable. And Yes, at times, I felt afraid. How do we overcome? How do we overcome our fears? How can we channel our frustration into something positive? And how do we rekindle that flame that’s inside of each of us?” She added, “And I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on those kinds of questions. I’ve spoken to a lot of my loved ones, and many of you, about what we all seem to be facing, and what has resulted from that process is actually my new book. It’s called “The Light We Carry.” Obama’s book will be released on November 15th in 14 different languages and available in 27 countries around the world. It will be released under Penguin Random House. The CEO of the publishing company, Markus Dohle, said, “Penguin Random House is honored to partner once again with Michelle Obama and to help bring her powerful storytelling and earned wisdom to readers everywhere.” Dohle added, “I am confident that her new book will provide all of us with some urgently needed reassurance while rekindling a spirit of optimism about the power we all hold to positively shape our personal and collective futures.”
