Barack Obama’s ‘A Promised Land’ Offers Hope

It’s almost November, and it’s a weighty month we’re stepping into. As a monumental presidential election is just days away, the news of former President Barack Obama’s Presidential Memoirs takes on an even greater meaning. Keep an eye out for Volume One, A Promised Land, set to hit the shelves November 17th.


“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,” Obama said.


Obama has been termed “the most literary president since Abraham Lincoln,” after his overwhelming success in his previous two best-selling books, Dreams From My Father, and The Audacity of HopeBut readers everywhere, as well as Americans, can expect an even bigger response from A Promised Land. This memoir comes at a time of much upheaval, most namely the Covid-19 pandemic, and at a time when books aren’t flying off the shelves as fast as they used to, a big-seller as such is estimated to offer some aid to booksellers.

Obama’s A Promised Land will be released by Crown, a division of Penguin Random House, on November 17th, 2020. Get yourself a copy before they run out!
