As the first African-American woman to serve as the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history. She firmly established herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls and dramatically changed the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives. Michelle Obama stood with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments and raised two down-to-earth daughters in the spotlight of the world’s media.

In her warm, insightful memoir Becoming, Michelle Obama chronicles the experiences that have shaped her, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, to her years as a mother in the workforce, to her time spent at the White House. Detailing the triumphs and disappointments from both her public and private life, Becoming is an astounding account of a woman who has defied expectations and inspired a generation.
