Audience members at the 2,700 capacity venue are invited into Michelle's world as she chronicles the experiences that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. One of the world’s most compelling, passionate and admired public speakers, Michelle recounts her triumphs and disappointments with honesty and wit, sharing the life lessons she has learned along the way.
The event comes weeks after the unveiling of a 30-foot mural of Michelle
on Dorrell Place in Brixton. The mural, created by Neequaye Dreph
Dsane, was commissioned to mark the launch of Michelle’s memoir.
Michelle is in conversation with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, famed for her 2014 book-length essay We Should All Be Feminists. Adichie is also the bestselling author of 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 and was named one of the ten best books of 2013 by The New York Times.
