The book I was working on most of last year got announced today—co-host of CBS Saturday Morning Michelle Miller did the cover reveal and shared her memoir's upcoming pub date on her show, so now I can share it here, too!
From the book's flap copy: "Belonging is the powerful and poignant chronicle of Michelle's decades-long quest to connect with the woman who gave her life, to confront her past, and ultimately to find her voice as a journalist, a wife, and a mother ... At once heartbreaking and uplifting, what emerges is an intimate family story about secrets—the secrets we keep, the secrets we share, and the secrets that make us who we are."
The book will be published on March 14, but you can pre-order it now. Michelle shares a hopeful, intimate, and courageous story about race and identity in America, and the quest to discover, or create, the places where we belong. Also, I loved working with her! She's one of the kindest, most invigorating, and generous humans you will ever know.
I love, love, LOVE that your name is on the cover. I know this must be one hell of a good book.ReplyDelete
Wonderful to get this book news today! I've put in a request for our public library to buy a copy of Belonging. Looking forward to reading it. The issue of secrets is close to my heart. Generations of secrets in my family on both sides.ReplyDelete
This sounds like such an excellent book. Reading the words about people wondering if she were Italian, Jewish, or Hispanic reminds me so much of my younger days when people would ask me if I was from India or Italy.ReplyDelete
