“I’m looking forward to making some new connections — and of course, seeing some familiar faces from the last tour,” Michelle Obama said about the upcoming tour in a joint statement with Roc Nation and publisher Crown.
“This book means so much to me — it’s a collection of perspectives and practices I’ve used to keep me afloat amid uncertainty. On this tour, I’ll be sharing some personal stories and lessons that have helped me along my path, and I can’t wait to tell you more.”
The book is going to be released on November 15 globally and is the follow up to her #1 best-seller Becoming. You can learn more about the upcoming book at www.michelleobamabooks.com.
