While we may not be able to meet in person right now, book clubs are still a great way to connect socially and stay engaged!
After you have read this month's choice, join us for a great discussion. Each month we will read a new title from a variety of genres and authors. New members are always welcome.
In a life
filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of
the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United
States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped
create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also
establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and
around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier
and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through
some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance
moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an
unforgiving media glare.
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, 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 her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.
