CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - OCTOBER 29: Former first lady Michelle Obama speaks to guests at the Obama Foundation Summit at Illinois Institute of Technology on October 29, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. The Summit is an annual event hosted by the Obama Foundation. The 2019 theme is "Places Reveal Our Purpose".

Michelle Obama is releasing another book this fall.

“The Light We Carry” will reportedly reflect upon the former first lady’s experiences and share insights on navigating an increasingly stressful world. Sounds like something I need to read based on the times we live in.

It is her first entirely new work since the 2018 release of “Becoming,” which has sold more than 17 million copies worldwide, surpassing the sales of any memoir by a previous first lady or modern president, including her husband, former President Barack Obama. Okay then Michelle!

Mrs. Obama said, “I’ve learned it’s okay to recognize that self-worth comes wrapped in vulnerability, and that what we share as humans on this earth is the impulse to strive for better, always and no matter what.  We become bolder in brightness. If you know your light, you know yourself. In my experience, this type of self-knowledge builds confidence, which in turn breeds calmness and an ability to maintain perspective, which leads, finally, to being able to connect meaningfully with others, and this to me is the bedrock of all things.”

November 15th is when we can expect the book on the shelves.
