Barack and Michelle Obama Will Return to Hyde Park for Publicity Events

Jimmy Kimmel Lands Michelle Obama’s First Late Night Stop On ‘Becoming’ Book Tour

"And for this I'd never forgive him". "But you all being here tonight is a testament to the light". "I might even tap Sasha".

Through her several successful crusades such as her Let's Move! campaign, The School Lunch Program, and Reach Higher Initiative, we've seen what makes Obama such an incredible role model.

However, the former first also spoke about some heavy subjects - for example, about how she went through a miscarriage weeks after getting pregnant.

Obama is on a media blitz promoting her new book, "Becoming", which was released on Tuesday.

With her glowing smile of the cover, the interview she had with Oprah Winfrey has become a must-read for those who are interested with Mrs. Obama's book. She was a prominent backer of Barack Obama's candidacy in 2008 and has interviewed both Obamas over the past decade.

"I hope we have a lot of great candidates who get in there and treat each other respectfully", she said. Someone from Barack's administration might have said that the optics there were bad - that what the public saw didn't reflect the president's reality or ideals...


The former first lady is out with her highly anticipated memoir, "Becoming," which follows her life from childhood in the South Side of Chicago to Washington.

She said she didn't mention that episode in her book, entitled Becoming. She has West Coast appearances in the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

Though she's no longer America's first lady, Obama continues to use her voice to inspire people, and as she kicked off her Becoming book tour this week she reminded everyone how important it is to take the high road. "They're growing up in a different world than even we grew up in, more diversity, more openness".

"Honestly, it's one of those pinch me, Cher-snap-out-of-it slap moments", Phoebe Robinson, who will be moderating Philadelphia and Detroit, wrote in an email to EW. "She's an icon and an incredible example for how we can live our lives. So to rock out with her on stage in front of thousands of people is just a dream come true!"

The visits to her alma mater this month have most likely felt like "the quiet before the storm", as the media blitz surrounding the "Becoming" book tour amp up. "How dare somebody tell me that I don't belong".
