3rd December 2018

In a UK-exclusive event, Southbank Centre, in collaboration with Penguin Live, presents Michelle Obama in conversation about her highly anticipated new memoir, Becoming, with acclaimed novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Reflecting on her memoir, Michelle Obama invites the audience at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall 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 recounts her triumphs and her disappointments – both public and private – and in candidly recounting moments from her own extraordinary journey, Mrs Obama also shares life lessons learned and inspires people to become the very best version of themselves.

Price: £30 - £125
Tickets go on sale: 10am Thursday 8th November
