The former first lady released a video announcement on social media.

"So I'm also a little frightened because it is so candid and honest and open but I can't wait to share it with the world, said Mrs. Obama.

Her memoir "Becoming" is being released on November 13. On that day Obama kicks off a 10-city U.S. tour in her hometown of Chicago. She will be at the SAP Center in San Jose on Friday, December 14.

Tour promoters from Live Nation say the night will feature intimate and honest conversations between Obama and a selection of to-be-announced moderators.

"And I've spent some time really thinking about the people and the stories and the experiences that have shaped me and helped me become the person I am today and I am proud of what I've created," said Obama.

Ten percent of every show's tickets will be donated to local charities, schools and community groups in each city the tour visits.

Admission starts at $29.50.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on September 21.
