My forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama has announced she will be releasing a life-affirming new book titled, “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times.”

In a letter announcing the book, Mrs. Obama wrote:

I want to start by saying thank you. Thank you for the support you showed me four years ago when I published my memoir Becoming. Sharing my story with you all was one of the most affirming experiences I’ve had in my life — and it actually inspired me to keep on writing.

That’s why today, I could not be more thrilled to tell you about my new book. It’s called The Light We Carry. 

Over the past few years, we’ve all been through a lot — from a global pandemic to our democracy coming under threat to a rising tide of injustice and intolerance. These days, every time I’m with friends or meeting folks like you, I can see how much we are all struggling to protect our own light in a world filled with uncertainty. 

This book is a collection of the practices and perspectives I’ve gathered over the years to help keep me centered. I reflect on questions that we’ve all thought about when we’re up late at night — questions like: How do I know I’m good enough? How do I bring my whole self to the table? How can I overcome my fears?  

My goal is to start an honest and open discussion about the kinds of tools and approaches we all need to navigate our days and keep our heads up during challenging times. I hope after reading it, you feel a little more secure, a little steadier — and understand that none of us have to go through any of this alone.

Thanks, again, for being on this journey with me.

The new book from Michelle Obama is slated for a November 15 release.
