Listen to the first audiobook clip from the former First Lady and hear why BECOMING, written and read by Michelle Obama, is a must for your audiobook collection. BECOMING is also Oprah’s newest book club selection! As Michelle Obama shared to a room of thousands of librarians at the 2018 American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans, “We all belong and I think my book is just the ordinariness of a very extraordinary story…I hope that it starts a conversation about voice and encourages so many other people because we need to know everyone’s stories so we don’t forget the humanity in each other.” Click here to watch the video of Mrs. Obama at ALA.
LISTEN TO AN AUDIOBOOK CLIP OF BECOMING: BECOMING
“Who but Obama herself could narrate the story of her life? With impeccable pacing, the former First Lady’s warm reading immediately pulls listeners close for what feels like an intimate chat with a friend. Her cozy and eloquent prose employs a cadence that translates well to the audio format, and her familiar voice adds another dimension to her very personal story—one that is deeper, more revealing, and sublimely genuine…A much-anticipated audio that delivers.”
—Booklist, starred review
“In a rich, warm timbre, Michelle Obama treats us to reminiscences and reflections on her life as though we were friends seated in her living room…This intimate listening experience allows us behind the public exterior and into the warm embrace of private revelations by one of our nation’s most beloved role models.”—AudioFile Earphones Award
