5 Celebrity Books To Lookout For

Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story by Bono (November 1, 2022)
U2 lead singer Bono has opted to use his pen to write a book, rather than music with Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story. In this memoir, the iconic musician takes fans through his early days in Ireland, the rise of his unlikely rise to fame and this activism.
He writes, “When I started to write this book, I was hoping to draw in detail what I’d previously only sketched in songs. The people, places, and possibilities in my life. Surrender is a word freighted with meaning for me. I am still grappling with this most humbling of commands. In the band, in my marriage, in my faith, in my life as an activist. Surrender is the story of one pilgrim’s lack of progress … With a fair amount of fun along the way.”
The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times by Michelle Obama (November 15, 2022)
The former First Lady is following up her memoir Becoming with The Light We Carry. In this book rather than focus on the negative state of our country, Obama equips readers with wisdom and strategies for remaining optimistic.
Drawing from her experience as a mother, a daughter, a wife and the First Lady, Obama challenges readers with questions like: How can we discover strength and community inside our differences? What do we do when it all starts to feel like too much? What tools do we use to address feelings of self-doubt or helplessness?
The Light We Carry dares its readers to examine their own lives and challenges them to connect with intention and meaning in a turbulent world.
