Simon & Schuster Audio said that Oscar-nominated actress Michelle Williams will narrate the audiobook of Britney Spears’ memoir The Woman in Me, set for release Oct. 24.
Spears will read an introduction on the audiobook, which will be released simultaneously with the book. Spears said in a news release: “This book has been a labor of love and all the emotions that come with it. Reliving everything has been exciting, heart-wrenching, and emotional, to say the least. For those reasons, I will only be reading a small part of my audiobook. I am so grateful to the amazing Michelle Williams for reading the rest of it.” Williams expressed her support for Spears in a statement, saying: “I stand with Britney.”
A synopsis via Simon & Schuster calls the book “a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith and hope. Written with remarkable candor and humor, Spears’ groundbreaking book illuminates the enduring power of music and love — and the importance of a woman telling her own story, on her own terms, at last.”
The audiobook will be published simultaneously with the other editions of The Woman in Me, available for preorder- here.
