Article Title: First Lady Michelle Obama Visits Music City for an Intimate Conversation on Becoming
Article: Join First Lady Michelle Obama on Sunday, May 12 at the Ryman Auditorium as she shares an intimate, powerful and inspiring conversation on her new memoir entitled “Becoming.” The book's 24 chapters (plus a preface and epilogue) are divided into three sections: Becoming Me, Becoming Us, and Becoming More and traces Obama's early life growing up on the South Side of Chicago, through her education at Princeton University and Harvard Law School to her early career as a lawyer at the law firm Sidley & Austin, where she met former president Barack Obama, to her role as First Lady of the United States.
  In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her. Moreover, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. 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.
  With more than 10 million sold to date, the best-selling memoir has already garnered coveted accolades such as #1 New York Times Bestseller , Oprah’s Book Club Pick and an NAACP Image Award Winner among many others.
  Michelle’s national book tour continues to attract sold-out crowds and has since expanded with its popularity. As of February 2019, another 21 cities have been added, including six in Europe and four in Canada.
  Be sure to join Michelle on May 12 at 8:00 pm for a conversation like no other. For more information on the upcoming event or to purchase tickets, call (615) 889-3060 or visit
