Becoming - Michelle Obama
Coming up to the American election, our book for November 2020 was 'Becoming' by Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States for eight years. She writes about her roots, her education, her search for work that was important and meaningful to her, her time at the White House, her role as wife and mother, and much more. It's an honest, reflective, and deeply personal account. The group praised the book highly as being honest and refreshing in this difficult time when dishonesty seems to be rife. She is very driven in all she does, full of energy, physical, maternal, and cerebral, starting with the gym at 5.00 am. It must be hard for her friends to keep up.
