Michelle Obama Launches Book Tour


November 23, 2018

Crown Publishing Group has confirmed that First Lady Michelle Obama sold more than 725,000 copies of her newest book Becoming in just one day. The sales figure includes hardcover, audio, and e-books editions for the United States and Canada, but the book is available in 24 languages around the world - including Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese and Hebrew! Mrs. Obama has broken a record - already surpassing the first day sales of other memoirs also written by first ladies. For example, Hillary Clinton’s Living History, which was released in 2003, sold only around 600,000 copies in the first week!

Helping to kick off the book's launch, Mrs. Obama launched a U.S. and international book tour that sold out almost instantly. Each of her appearances was moderated by one of her many friends like Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Valerie

Jarrett, Reese Witherspoon, and more.
