Rejoice and behold! I bring you good tidings of great joy: MICHELLE OBAMA IS COMING TO TACOMA!
As you know, the former first lady is currently on her book tour to promote her autobiography Becoming, and she has just added a local stop to her itinerary. She'll be appearing at the Tacoma Dome on Friday, February 8, for an "intimate conversation" (at the Tacoma Dome? Okay, fine, if anybody can accomplish that, it's her) and you need to register to get pre-sale tickets—and you absolutely should because IT IS GONNA SELL THE EFF OUT PRONTO.
Published only a month ago, Becoming has already become one of the best-selling nonfiction AND political memoirs in history, racking up more than three million sales so far. In fact, the massive popularity of the book inspired her to extend her tour to the Pacific Northwest, adding dates in Portland (February 9) and Vancouver, BC (March 21).
That's all very exciting, yes. But the big question for me is: "Who will be onstage with Michelle interviewing her?" So far she's appeared with celebs Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Phoebe Robinson—but as of now, it's anyone's guess who'll be joining her on her Tacoma stop.
Stay tuned for more exciting details as we get them, AND SIGN UP FOR PRE-SALE TICKETS NOW!
