Former First Lady Michelle Obama has a new book coming out this fall.

She made the announcement on Twitter Thursday, saying she's been "thinking about how to stay centered in a world filled with so much uncertainty."

"The Light We Carry" will be released November 15.

Her first book, "Becoming" sold more than 17-million copies worldwide when it was released in 2018.
