Michelle Obama plans 10-city book tour

Lethbridge Herald - - GREAT READS | SATURDAY BOOKS -

Michelle Obama will visit 10 cities to pro­mote her mem­oir “Be­com­ing,” a tour fea­tur­ing are­nas and other per­form­ing cen­tres to ac­com­mo­date crowds far too big for any book­store.

The for­mer first lady will be­gin at the United Cen­ter in her na­tive Chicago on Nov. 13, the book’s re­lease date. She will fin­ish at the Amer­i­can Air­lines Cen­ter in Dal­las on Dec. 17, Live Na­tion and the Crown Pub­lish­ing Group an­nounced Wed­nes­day. In be­tween, ap­pear­ances will in­clude Bar­clays Cen­ter in New York City, the Pepsi Cen­ter Arena in Den­ver and The Fo­rum in Los An­ge­les.

Obama and for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama each have been work­ing on mem­oirs, for which they ne­go­ti­ated a mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar deal with Crown. No date has been set for his book, although it’s ex­pected in 2019.
