Michelle Obama is hitting the road this fall to publicize her upcoming book “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times,” and a star-studded lineup of moderators is scheduled to appear alongside the Former First Lady for tour dates across the country.
Produced by Live Nation, the tour will start in Washington D.C with three nights at Warner Theatre between Nov. 15-17, featuring Ellen DeGeneres moderating the first two panels and American poet Elizabeth Alexander on the third. The rest of the tour events will be moderated by a slew of bold-faced names, including Gayle King (11/18), Hoda Kotb (11/19), Tyler Perry (12/2 and 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,” Obama said in a statement. “I can’t wait to get back on the road and dive into it with such a thoughtful, impressive group of moderators.”
