Multiple award winning author Chimamanda Adichie is set to moderate the event of Michelle Obama’s new memoir ‘Becoming’ at Southbank Centre, London, complete with a live chat session with the former US first lady, it has been announced. The news was announced on Southbank Centre’s event page.
The event will take place at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 3 December 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m., Thursday, 8 November. But Southbank Centre Members and Supporters Circles can get their tickets one day earlier.
At £30 – £125 (+£3 booking fee), the tickets are not the cheapest, but you get a hard back copy of Becoming and you get to breathe the same air with two of the world’s most important feminist figures.
Becoming is published by Crown Publishing Group and comes out on November 13. The book promises an intimate look into the life of one of the world’s most powerful women.
According to the Amazon blurb, Becoming is “a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling.” In the book, Mrs. 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.”
Again, tickets go on sale on November 8. Mark your calendars.
