Former first lady Michelle Obama is set to begin a book tour for her new memoir, “Becoming.”

The 10-city tour will kick off Nov. 13 in Obama’s hometown of Chicago.

The memoir chronicles the experiences that have shaped Obama on her way to the White House, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work.

The book, slated for release in the U.S. and Canada in print and digital formats and in an audio edition to be read by her, will be published simultaneously in 24 languages around the world.
