Former Fist Lady Michelle Obama released her new book Becoming yesterday, Nov. 13 and is kicking off her book tour with Oprah Winfrey.

Summarized on the new book's website:
As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. 
The book goes into detail not only of the Obama family's time in the Whitehouse, but also delves into the First Lady's childhood, college years, motherhood and beyond. It gives insight into what it is really like to live inside the Whitehouse, how she really felt on President Trump's inauguration day, how the First Daughters dealt with their young fame and more.

Her month-long book tour unfortunately doesn't come close to Tucson, but her book is available online, and fans can follow along with videos from the tour.
