Michelle Obama’s memoir — titled “Becoming” and chronicling “how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others” — will hit stores Nov. 13, she revealed Sunday.

“Writing ‘Becoming’ has been a deeply personal experience,” the former first lady tweeted. “It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life.”

The hotly anticipated memoir is being published in 24 languages and part of a two-book $30 million-plus deal with Penguin Random House that includes a yet-published memoir from her husband, former President Obama.

Markus Dohle, the publishing house’s CEO, said he believes that Michelle’s book will serve as an inspiration both women and men.

It’s “an unusually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations — and whose story inspires us to do the same,” he said.

The portrait for her book jacket was taken by celebrity photographer Miller Mobley but has yet to be released.

Once “Becoming” is published, Michelle, 54, is expected to go on a US and international book tour.

In past interviews, the former first lady has said women of color grow up with “doubts in their heads” — a topic she has said she was tackling in the memoir.

“My parents weren’t wealthy,” she told the Hartford Courant in November. “They weren’t fancy folks. But we had a good childhood, living in a little, bitty apartment.

“What girls and young people need… is consistent love and support and the belief of somebody out there that they’re worthy. I had that.”
