In her memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling 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, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.

She returns to the UK on Sunday 14 April to talk about her memoir in an event at London’s O2 arena. We have two sets of ten tickets for the event available for two lucky reading groups to win.


To enter the competition, share a photo of your reading group on twitter and post the question you would like to ask Michelle Obama if you attended the event. Entries need to use #IAmBecoming and don’t forget to tag @ReadingAgency and @PenguinUkBooks. Open to UK entries only.

Competition closes 25 March.

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
