WASHINGTON — Former First Lady Michelle Obama is focusing on college students to promote her memoir "Becoming."
The book has been out since 2018, and the publisher says it's still selling more than 2,000 copies per week. It's also becoming part of the curriculum at several universities.
In an effort to reach more college students, Mrs. Obama will join students from 22 schools across the country, including Prince George's Community College, for a virtual conversation next Tuesday. She will be joined by Blackish star Yara Shahidi.
On top of that, the former First Lady's publisher is going to donate 100 copies of "Becoming" to 12 schools in the Maryland Community College Consortium.
In a statement, Mrs. Obama said she's a first-generation college student herself, and she's eager to hear how students have been coping during the pandemic.
