Michelle Obama’s Giving Away Free Book Tour Tickets

Michelle Obama is giving away thousands of tickets to her “Becoming” book tour to local and community organizations. A press release announced ten percent of tickets for the almost-sold-out event have been set aside by Live Nation for local charities, schools, and community groups.

“It was important to me that all sorts of people could come to the tour events, not just those with means or who happened to be by a computer when the tickets went on sale,” Obama said in the press release announcing the giveaway. “That’s why we are giving away thousands of tickets to people around the country, particularly to young people striving to be their best. I want them to see themselves in my story—to see the value in the fullness of their lives and to imagine who they might become in the years ahead.”

Mrs. Obama surprised Harlem students with the news they are getting free tickets.

Her 10-city book tour kicks off Nov. 13 in Chicago.
