Week at a Glance at the Library

Friday, March 22

2 p.m. Bookmarks: "Becoming" by Michelle Obama — Pat Klewer will review "Becoming" by Michelle Obama. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.
