DENVER — Michelle Obama is making a stop in the Mile High City this December to talk about her new memoir that’s set be released on November 13.
The former first lady announced a 10-city book tour titled Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama on Wednesday afternoon. Her conversation in Denver will be held at Pepsi Center on December 13.
Attendees can expect to hear about a range of experiences and events that shaped her life – from her childhood in Chicago to her years spent as the First Lady of the United States of America.
There will also be onstage conversations between Michelle Obama and a selection of moderators that will be announced at a later date.
Michelle Obama and Live Nation also plan to donate 10 percent of every show’s ticket sales to various charities, school and community groups in each city of the tour.
The tour kicks off November 13 in Chicago, and ends in Dallas on December 17. Tickets go on sale for the general public starting at 10 a.m. on September 21 at BecomingMichelleObama.com.
A limited amount of VIP meet and greet packages will be available for purchase.
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. Go to BecomingMichelleObama.com to find out where I’ll be and how to get tickets. #IAmBecoming I hope to see you somewhere along the way!
