Michelle Obama just announced a 10-city book tour—here’s how to get tickets
Michelle Obama is coming to a city near you. On September 12th, the former first lady took to her social media channels to announce a 10-city book tour for her upcoming memoir, Becoming. The tour, titled “Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama,” kicks off on Tuesday, November 13th in her hometown of Chicago and concludes on December 17th in Dallas, Texas. Becoming will be released on November 13th in the U.S. and Canada. In the video, Michelle says:
“Over this time that I’ve been out of the White House, I’ve had time to think and reflect for the first time in a long time. I spent some time really thinking about the people, the stories, and the experiences that have shaped me and helped me become the person I am today.
She added, “I’m proud because it is candid, it’s honest, it is totally and utterly me. So I’m also a little frightened because it is so candid and honest and open.”
Along with Chicago, Obama’s tour will span Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, and more. Two shows each will take place in Washington D.C. and Brooklyn.
