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.
