92Y Becoming Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, sat down for an in-depth conversation about the former first lady's much-acclaimed memoir, Becoming, at Hearst Tower in NYC
Michelle Obama's memoir, Becoming, is one of the latest selection for Oprah's Book Club. A copy will be awarded to a 92Y series member.
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences 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 time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.
