Michelle Obama will embark on a six-city book tour this fall to support her highly-anticipated new book, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour will begin on the book’s release date, Nov. 15., in Washington D.C. at the Warner Theatre. It’ll also stop in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco before wrapping up on Dec. 13 in Los Angeles at the YouTube Theater.
“I am so excited to share that I will be heading across the country soon to talk with you all about my new book, The Light We Carry. I’m looking forward to making some new connections—and of course, seeing some familiar faces from the last tour,” said the former First Lady in a statement. “This book means so much to me—it’s a collection of perspectives and practices I’ve used to keep me afloat amid uncertainty. On this tour, I’ll be sharing some personal stories and lessons that have helped me along my path, and I can’t wait to tell you more.”
Tara Traub, Live Nation’s SVP of Global Touring, added, “Following the incredible success of her Becoming Tour, we are honored to be working with Mrs. Obama again to bring The Light We Carry Tour to live audiences across the US this fall. We are thrilled to be part of helping her share the practices and new pathways she’s created that have the power to create meaningful change and connect us to one another during difficult times.”
