Barack Obama is set to share his story in a major way.
For, the 44th President of the United States has officially announced a new book – ‘A Promised Land.’
Full story below…
Taking to social media, the much-loved figure trumpeted the November 17 release of the surefire page-turner – which will chronicle his time in the White House and the personal journey he and wife Michelle Obama experienced during said frame.
“There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one. I’ve spent the last few years reflecting on my presidency, and in A Promised Land I’ve tried to provide an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office: the key events and people who shaped it, my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made, and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then—and that as a nation we are grappling with still.
In the book, I’ve also tried to give readers a sense of the personal journey that Michelle and I went through during those years, with all the incredible highs and lows. And finally, at a time when America is going through such enormous upheaval, the book offers some of my broader thoughts on how we can heal the divisions in our country going forward and make our democracy work for everybody—a task that won’t depend on any single president, but on all of us as engaged citizens.
Along with being a fun and informative read, I hope more than anything that the book inspires young people across the country—and around the globe—to take up the baton, lift up their voices, and play their part in remaking the world for the better.”
‘A Promised Land,’ which interestingly will be released a week after the upcoming US Presidential Election, adds to a packed plate of post White House activity from The Obamas.
As reported, Michelle Obama’s memoir ‘Becoming’ was a blockbuster success (selling over 10 million copies and birthing a Spotify podcast); the couple also inked a lucrative deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming giant.
