Almost four years after leaving the White House, former US President Barack Obama wants to publish the first part of his memoirs.
The book ‘A Promised Land’ will be released on November 17, two weeks after this year’s US election, publisher Penguin Random House announced Thursday.
In addition to English, the book will also be published that day in 24 other languages.
Obama wrote on Twitter that he wanted to take a fair balance of his presidency in his book. In addition, he sheds light on the forces with which the US as a nation is struggling, how divisions can be healed, and democracy can work for everyone.
Obama was elected in November 2008 and the first black president to enter the White House in 2009. In 2012 the Democrat was re-elected.
The release date for the second and final part of the memoir has not yet been announced and will be announced at a later date, the publisher said. The memoirs of Obama’s wife Michelle already appeared in American bookstores in 2018 and became bestsellers.
