Barack Obama has announced that his new memoir titled “A Promised Land“ will be released in November, shortly after the US election.
The former American president’s publisher, Penguin Random House also made this known on Thursday September 17, revealing the presidential memoir will be published in two volumes.
The first volume is scheduled for global release on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, and will be issued simultaneously in 25 languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Czech, Finnish and Vietnamese.
Introducing the cover in a statement on Instagram, Obama said, “There’s no feeling like finishing a book, and I’m proud of this one.” He added, “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.”
According to him, the book gives readers a sense of his and Michelle’s personal journey during that time as well, “with all the incredible highs and lows.” He also offers his thoughts on how to heal the country’s divisions and hopes the book will inspire young people to “play their part in remaking the world for the better.”
“A Promised Land” will be published in hardcover and digital formats, and an unabridged audio edition of the book, read by President Obama himself, will be simultaneously released in digital and physical formats by Penguin Random House Audio.
The publication date for the second, and concluding, the volume of the memoirs has not yet been set and will be announced at a later date. Details about President Obama’s book tour will be announced later this year.
