Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie will be moderating Michelle Obama’s UK exclusive book launch event, slated on Monday, 3rd, December, 2018 at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. Isn’t that exciting?! We are so envious of the people who would be attending the event!
The highly anticipated book is a memoir titled, “Becoming”
“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, Mrs Obama will also share life lessons learned, and inspire people to become the very best version of themselves.”
As part of her work with and in support of young people, Michelle Obama, Southbank Centre and Penguin Live will be donating 300 free tickets to secondary school pupils from across London and the UK, as well as some local charities and along with the rest of the audience will receive a hardback copy of Becoming.
We are already anticipating the great conversations that would happen at the event; two great, intelligent and accomplished women on the same stage! Get you pens and papers out for the powerful quotes that we would surely have after the event.
News reaching us is that the tickets for the event are already sold out. Don’t despair, hopefully, a video of the event would be released later on.
