Michelle Obama Continues World Book Tour With A-List Moderators [DATES & TICKET INFO]
Former First Lady and bestselling author Michelle Obama is currently in the midst of the second leg of her Becoming book world tour. The tour, which was announced at the end of last year, features Obama in intimate settings answering questions from a (usually famous) moderator about her memoir, which became the number one book sold in the United States in 2018.
This leg of the tour began on February 8 and will continue until May 12, hitting spots in the U.S. and abroad, including stops in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and France. Tickets are currently available via StubHub, with prices ranging from $40 for the Montreal show to $2,500 VIP packages.
Recently, Obama has been announcing the names of the famous moderators who will join her throughout the tour. So far, it has been revealed that the all-star list will include comedians Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel, Oprah Magazine editor Gayle King, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, celebrity chefs Carla Hall and Rachael Ray, journalist Iha Sesay and former government official Valerie Jarrett.
Right before the leg began, Obama posted a video to her Twitter account expressing her excitement to continue her tour.
As I prepare for the final leg of my tour, I’m hoping to hear more from all of you who’ve been discussing Becoming in book clubs! Share your thoughts with me using #IAmBecoming.
