Michelle Obama Coming to Portland

February stop added to book tour

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has added Portland to the list of cities she will visit to promote her new book, “Becoming.”

The upcoming Feb. 9 appearance at the Moda Center was announced Monday as her national book tour, billed as “an intimate conversation” with Obama, was increased with more appearances around the country, including Portland and Tacoma in the Pacific Northwest.

Access to presale tickets is available by registering through Ticketmaster Verified Fan by Wednesday at 10 p.m. to access presale tickets by Friday, Dec. 14, while supplies last. The platform is being used to ensure tickets are put into the hands of real fans and not resold on secondary websites.

In her memoir “Becoming,” Obama describes her life with deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling. She 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.
