Michelle Obama Announces Tour For New Book ‘The Light We Carry’

The forever first lady is slated to hit half a dozen cities.

Michelle Obama is scheduled to head out on a six-city national tour to promote her forthcoming book, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times.

On Wednesday, Live Nation and the former first lady’s publisher, Crown, announced that Mrs. Obama will touch down in half a dozen cities. Among those include Washington D.C. (which will take place on the book’s release date of November 15), Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“I am so excited to share that I will be heading across the country soon to talk with you all about my new book,” Obama, 58, said in a statement, according to The Hill. “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.”
