Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice, will serve as a self-help coach of sorts with over 150 inspiring questions and quotes that connect to key themes in her memoir. The journal will also help bring readers to terms with the importance of family and personal reflections as well as the goals they’d like to make a reality.
With the journal, Obama hopes readers will be encouraged to find value in their own personal journeys of becoming.
“I hope you’ll use this journal to write down your experiences, thoughts, and feelings, in all their imperfections, and without judgment…. We don’t have to remember everything,” the intro reads. “But everything we remember has value.”
Released last year, Becoming was an instant hit with Obama’s admires, reaching The New York Times Best Sellers List with over 11.5 million units sold worldwide. The release was also paired with a perfect world tour with Obama holding conversations around the memoir’s elements with famous friends like Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey.

In an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, Obama shared how personal Becoming was by comparing it to the conversations she would share with close friends.
“I’m talking about me, all of me, in a way that I do with my friends, my girlfriends,” said. “Now I’m talking about it with the world. It’s not that I’m nervous about my story but I hope that it inspires people and it encourages people and it starts a conversation.”
Becoming: A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice will be published Nov. 19 for U.S. and Canada residents.
