JOIN ME ON MY BOOK TOUR! www.becomingmichelleobama.com #IAmBecoming I’m from the South Side of Chicago. I went to Princeton and Harvard. I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I’ve been a lawyer, a nonprofit leader, a hospital executive, and First Lady of the United States. I like to call these my “stats” – the shorthand we all seem to default to whenever we tell our stories. Where are you from? What do you do? What school did you go to? As I’ve written my memoir, BECOMING, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my story, mining it for the kinds of details I’d usually just brush off or even forget about—the narrow taillights of my father’s car, a talk with my mother on a drive home, the heat of my daughter’s forehead when she ran a fever. And in doing so, I’ve realized that those surface-level “stats” don’t really tell my story at all. This fall, I’d like to share that fuller story with all of you on my book tour. It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes and worries. It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it—blemishes and all. Go to BecomingMichelleObama.com to find out where I’ll be and how to get tickets. #IAmBecoming I hope to see you somewhere along the way!
Tickets for the event will be sold through Ticketmaster’s VerifiedFan system, with 10 percent of the seats in each venue given away free to fans and local community members who might not be able to afford tickets.
The BECOMING An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama tour will feature intimate and honest conversations between Mrs. Obama and a selection of to-be-announced moderators, reflective of the extraordinary stories shared in the wide-ranging chapters of her upcoming memoir. Attendees will hear firsthand about Mrs. Obama’s inspirational triumphs and personal setbacks, from childhood to the White House, where she became revered around the world as a transformative voice for change and inclusivity. Before Mrs. Obama was the first African-American First Lady of the United States of America and a powerful advocate for women and healthy lifestyles, she was a girl growing up on the South Side of Chicago. The tour will candidly recount moments spanning both her personal and professional life, as a way to share lessons learned and inspire people to become the best version of themselves.
