CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 12, 2018) (NBC) – Former first lady Michelle Obama visited her high school on Monday (November 12) a day before her long-awaited book tour was set to begin.
Obama met with students at the Whitney M. Young Magnet School in Chicago where she graduated in 1981.
Michelle Obama’s new book called “Becoming” will go on sale on Tuesday.
The memoir chronicles Michelle’s life growing up on Chicago’s South Side through her years inside the White House as a mother of two and as the nation’s first African-American first lady.
The memoir fulfills half of an agreement that publisher Penguin Random House reached with her and the former president after he left office under which the couple will each publish one book, reportedly for a sum worth more than $60 million.
