The former first lady’s second book is set to release on Nov. 15 After receiving critical acclaim and a Grammy award for her best-selling memoir Becoming, Michelle Obama will now be releasing a second book, the former first lady announced on Instagram this morning.

Set to release on Nov. 15, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times “offers readers a series of fresh stories and insightful reflections on change, challenge, and power,” according to a statement shared with PEOPLE.

“I’ve learned it’s okay to recognize that self-worth comes wrapped in vulnerability, and that what we share as humans on this earth is the impulse to strive for better, always and no matter what,” wrote Obama in the introduction of her book.

Markus Dohle, CEO of Penguin Random House under which the book will be released, said, “Penguin Random House is honored to partner once again with Michelle Obama and to help bring her powerful storytelling and earned wisdom to readers everywhere.”
