NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Five time Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe winner, Primetime Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Michelle Williams will narrate the audio edition of THE WOMAN IN ME by Britney Spears. Spears will read an introduction to the audiobook, to be published simultaneously with the other editions on October 24, 2023.
“This book has been a labor of love and all the emotions that come with it,” says Spears. “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.”
“I stand with Britney,” says Williams, the acclaimed American actress who has received five Academy Award nominations, an Emmy Award, and two Golden Globe Awards. Her credits include Manchester by the Sea, My Week with Marilyn, Blue Valentine, Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans and FX’s Fosse/Verdon. This is her first audiobook.
THE WOMAN IN ME is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope. It reveals for the first time Britney’s incredible journey—and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop music history. Written with remarkable candor and humor, Spears’s 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.
