In early December 2018, many people have been disappointed to know that Michelle Obama was cancelling her European tour. The former First Lady of the United States was supposed to come to Boulogne-Billancourt La Seine Musicale on Wednesday December 5, 2018 for an exclusive conference held by Editions Fayard and Asterios Spectacles.
But following the death of the former President of the United States, Georges Bush, Michelle Obama decided to cancel her European tour.
In a Tweet, Michelle Obama said: "I've been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I'm working to reschedule my trip for next year".
With that done, Michelle Obama will be in Paris this spring for the event: "Becoming: An intimate conversation with Michelle Obama". For this new date scheduled on Tuesday April 16, 2019, the former First Lady of the United States will take over AccorHotels Arena huge stage.
Shaped like a conversation, Michelle Obama would have made the best of it to return to her event book called “Becoming”, available in stores on November 13.
The occasion for the public to know more about Michelle Obama’s universe, based on the writings of her experience that made her the woman she is today, from her childhood in South Side Chicago through the years when she had to reconciles her life as an attorney and as a mother to the two mandates spent at the White House.
“Becoming” tells her intimate path of a strong woman who always managed to go beyond what were expected of her.
Note that at each step of the tour, moderators - yet to be announced - will lead the conversation with the former First Lady.
