Michelle Obama Launches Book Tour

Former First Lady Michelle Obama will visit 10 cities later this year to promote her memoir Becoming, a tour featuring arenas and other performing centers to accommodate crowds too big for any bookstore.

Mrs. Obama 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

She and her husband Barack have both been working on memoirs for which they negotiated a multimillion-dollar deal with the Crown Publishing Group.
