What is the title of Barack Obama’s 1995 memoir?
“Dreams from My Father”?
Dreams from My Father is a memoir by Barack Obama, who was elected as U.S. President in 2008. It explores events of his early years up until his entry into law school in 1988. Obama published the memoir in July 1995, when he was starting his political campaign for Illinois Senate.
After Obama won the U.S. Senate Democratic primary victory in Illinois in 2004, the book was re-published that year. The audiobook edition earned Obama the Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album in 2006.
Five days before being sworn in as President in 2009, Obama secured a $500,000 advance for an abridged version of Dreams from My Father for middle-school-aged children.
