New York, NY – November 28, 2018 – Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced that it will host the only New York City booksigning of Michelle Obama’s national book tour on Friday, November 30, at 11:30 AM at its Union Square location (33 E 17th St). Wristbands will be given to the first 500 customers who buy Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming at the Union Square Barnes & Noble store only on Thursday, November 29, starting at 9 AM, with a limit of two signed books per customer.
Barnes & Noble is pleased to be hosting the first and only New York City booksigning for Michelle Obama’s intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir. Becoming is available at Barnes & Noble bookstores around the country, and on BN.com.
In her memoir, published by The Crown Publishing Group, Michelle Obama invites readers 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 describes her triumphs and disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.
Michelle Obama served as First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017. A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, Mrs. Obama started her career as an attorney at the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin, where she met her future husband, Barack Obama. She later worked in the Chicago mayor’s office, at the University of Chicago, and at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Mrs. Obama also founded the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an organization that prepares young people for careers in public service. The Obamas currently live in Washington, DC, and have two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
