The former First Lady of the United States will spend an evening on stage talking about her new book, which will be released on November 13.
To mark her advocacy of young people and education, 300 hundred free tickets have been allocated for UK secondaty school pupils and local charities.
Obama will be in conversation with the novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, on Monday December 3 at the Southbank Centre’s main hall in front of 2,700 people.
It will be a unique opportunity to hear the story of one of the most powerful women in modern history.
Drawing inspiration from her new memoir, Belonging, Michelle Obama will chronicle 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.
Of course, audiences will be particularly fascinated to hear about her time spent at the world’s most famous address alongside her husband, a certain Mr Barack Obama.
Together the pair made history and seemed to usher in a new era in modern politics and society.
What came afterwards will also, no doubt, be addressed by Michelle with her usual wit, candour and perception.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the best-selling author of the novels Purple Hibiscus, which won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, Half of a Yellow Sun, which won the Orange Prize, and Americanah, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award.
In 2012 she published We Should All Be Feminists and her most recent book, Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, was published in March 2017.
