Michelle Obama Is Going On A Book Tour
Michelle Obama went on Instagram on Wednesday night to share some good news with all of her loyal supporters. Only two years since her departure from the White House, and the former first lady has completed her memoir.
Becoming is set to hit shelves on November 13, which is the same day she’ll kick off her 10-date book tour in Chicago. The tour will continue to take her through arenas across America throughout the holiday season. Other cities include Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Detroit, Denver, San Francisco and the final stop, Dallas. Obama is promising that her book will be a candid reflection of her life, including a round-up off the small moments that helped shape who she is today.
“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,” Obama said via her Instagram page. “It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it—blemishes and all.”

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.
