In promotion of her new memoir Becoming.

September 12, 2018

Michelle Obama will head out on the road this November to tour her new book, a memoir titled Becoming. Obama will kick off in her hometown of Chicago on November 13 — the evening of the book's release — and will hit 10-cities across the country.


Through Novmeber until mid-December, the former First Lady will make stops in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Detroit, Denver, San Jose, before concluding in Dallas.

Becoming will cover Obama's roots in Chicago's South Side, and dissect her time as First Lady during Barack Obama's administration, as well as her stories as a woman, a wife, and a mother.

“I’ve spent the last year and a half reflecting on my story as deeply and honestly as I could, and now I’m thrilled to travel the country and do the same with readers this fall,” Obama said in a statement. “I hope that this tour will inspire others to reflect upon and share their own stories—all the joys and sorrows, all the scars and renewals—so that together, we can better recognize that each of us, in our own way, is in a constant process of becoming.”

Tickets for the Becoming book tour will go on sale on Friday September 21 here.
