The other tour events will be moderated by an all-star lineup of speakers including Elizabeth Alexander (11/17), Gayle King (11/18), Hoda Kotb (11/19), Tyler Perry (12/2 + 12/3), David Letterman (12/5), Heather McGhee (12/6), Conan O’Brien (12/9), Tracee Ellis Ross (12/10), Michele Norris (12/11), and Oprah Winfrey (12/13).

“For me, The Light We Carry book tour will be about starting important conversations and digging deeper into the questions that all of us are grappling with as we live through uncertain times,” Mrs. Obama said. “I can’t wait to get back on the road and dive into it with such a thoughtful, impressive group of moderators.”

On November 15th, the same day as the tour kick-off, Michelle Obama will globally release her second book, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times. The book shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world.
