Michelle Obama

Former first lady Michelle Obama’s first book Becoming was an instant bestseller. “We learn about her first kiss, about the fact that she failed the bar exam the first time she took it, about her going to couples counseling with her husband. This is not a biography that withholds the tidbits one craves when reading about a famous person.” Professor Sharon Marcus included Becoming in her list of best books on celebrity.

Her latest book, The Light We Carry, is due out November 15th.
