Becoming will detail much of the former first lady's life, from her beginnings on Chicago's South Side, and up into her time as first lady during the Obama administration.

“I hope that this tour will inspire others to reflect upon and share their own stories," Obama said of the book in a statement. "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.”

The tour kicks off in Chicago on November 13. Tickets are on sale now here.
