Former First Lady Michelle Obama speaks before unveiling her official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery on Feb. 12, in Washington, D.C. Obama announced her memoir "Becoming" will hit shelves Nov. 13.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama announced her “deeply personal” memoir, “Becoming,” will hit shelves Nov. 13.

Obama, 54, revealed the work’s title and release date in a tweet Sunday, and said the book will chronicle her life, leading up to and including her time in the White House.

“Writing ‘Becoming’ has been a deeply personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the South Side (of Chicago) found her voice,” she wrote.

The accompanying website describes “Becoming” as “warm, wise and revelatory… The deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations – and whose story inspires others to do the same.”

Obama will embark on an international book tour closer to publication, and is slated to read the audiobook version.

Her book deal – along with husband Barack’s – was announced by Penguin Random House in February 2017.

She previously penned a 2012 cookbook called “American Grown” that promoted healthy eating, a cause she championed as First Lady with the Let’s Move! initiative to fight childhood obesity.
