Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama
Former First Lady Michelle Obama comes to Austin as part of her U.S. book tour in support of her memoir, Becoming. The event will feature an intimate and honest conversation between Mrs. Obama and Rachael Ray, reflective of the extraordinary stories shared in the wide-ranging chapters of her deeply personal book.
Attendees will hear firsthand Mrs. Obama’s intimate reflections on the experiences and events, both public and private, that have shaped her, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her years spent at the most famous address in the world.
Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of the modern era. As First Lady of the United States of America, the first African-American to serve in that role, she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.
In candidly recounting moments from her own extraordinary journey, Mrs. Obama will also share life lessons learned and inspire people to become the very best version of themselves.
