BECOMING-by Michelle Obama

May 11th, 2019

As First Lady of the USA-the first African American to serve in that role-Michelle Obama helped create the most welcoming & inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women & girls in the U.S. & around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier & more active lives.

In her memoir, Becoming, a work of deep reflection & mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her-from her childhood on the south side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood & work, & then her time spent at the world’s most famous address.  With unerring honesty & lively wit, she describes her triumphs & disappointments, both public & private, telling her full story as she has lived it.  Warm, wise & revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul & substance who has steadily defied expectations-& whose story inspires us to do the same.
