Becoming, the memoir by former First Lady Michelle Obama, currently holds the #1 spot on the Libro.fm Bestsellers list. Her book tour kicked off with Oprah Winfrey at Chicago’s United Center and will include appearances at ten major arenas across the United States.
In talking about her book at ALA Annual 2018, Michelle Obama focused on the importance of stories and seeing the humanity in each other. Of her book she said, “It’s a rehumanization effort…we all belong. My book is just the ordinariness of a very extraordinary story, and I hope that by telling it that it makes others…feel the pride in their story, in the way that I feel about mine.”
When Michelle Obama first shared her book cover on Instagram in May, she wrote, “The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”
