Featuring an introduction by Obama, the Becoming journal includes more than 150 questions and quotes that resonate with key themes in Obama’s memoir that are designed to help readers “reflect on their personal and family history, their goals, challenges, and dreams, what moves them and brings them hope, and what future they imagine for themselves and their community.” World publication rights for the Becoming journal were acquired by Penguin Random House from the author’s representatives, Robert B. Barnett and Deneen Howell of Williams & Connolly.
