On December 3rd, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will moderate an on-stage conversation with Michelle Obama about Obama’s new memoir, “Becoming”.
The conversation will cover Obama’s early life and career, her reinvention of the role of First Lady, and her ongoing activities since leaving the White House.
Reflecting on her memoir, Michelle Obama will invite audiences 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 will recount her triumphs and her disappointments – both public and private – and in candidly recounting moments from her own extraordinary journey, Obama will also share life lessons learned, and inspire people to become the very best version of themselves.
The event will take place at the Royal Festival Hall of the Southbank Centre in London.
