The former First Lady is set to release The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times, on November 15, 2022 and she will be heading out across the US to promote the "collection of stories and practices that have helped me sort through all the challenges and questions that keep us up at night: How do I know I’m good enough? How do I bring my whole self to the table? How can I overcome my fears?"

Michelle has kept busy after husband Barack Obama left the White House in 2017, recently unveiling her official White House portrait and being inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.
