Becoming

 

Book Description:

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States.

Share this In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era.

As First Lady of the United States of America-the first African-American to serve in that role-she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her-from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it-in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations-and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Why our staff love Becoming:

Our book of the month is one of the most highly anticipated books of 2018, and one that I have been impatiently waiting for since it was announced earlier this year. That book is none other than Becoming, Michelle Obama’s beautifully compelling memoir of her life before, during and immediately after she became the First Lady of the United States.

Stepping into the political spotlight in such a role is just one milestone on the road of a fascinating life that began in a small house in Chicago’s rougher South Side. It’s there that we discover Michelle as a confident young girl with a thirst for knowledge and success, growing into a woman who could never quite shake that yearning. Obama writes with a measured but impassioned voice on such topics as race and inequality, her professional doubts (she gave up a career in law to pursue more community-based projects) and her difficulties in falling pregnant. Her marriage to Barack is chronicled with particular tenderness, but she also writes authentically about the difficulties of being a working mother and a wife to an up-and-coming politician who would come to leave an indelible mark on the world. Rest assured, however, that this is no scandalous tell-all - there is not a detail given by Michele that is without purpose, making this a truly refreshing read.

From the pages of Becoming Michelle Obama emerges as a spirited woman whose tenacity and sheer determination drove her to beat significant odds. It’s a gracious and hopeful account of a life spent under the most blinding of spotlights that I cannot recommend highly enough.
