Best Michelle Obama Books

Updated on November 14, 2012

Books about Michelle Obama

As with every First Lady, the press wants to know about her fashion sense, what she's wearing, how she decorates the White House. Michelle Obama is a wife, a mother and a public figure. She is raising a young family in the glare of the media spotlight while standing beside her husband, the President.

With the President, she is making a home for her young family, whether at home at the White House or halfway across the world. These books give us a glimpse of the life of the First Lady.

Michelle Obama

The First African American First Lady

Michelle Obama grew up in inner-city Chicago, the child of a lower-middle-class Black urban family (not that different from my own). She studied hard and won a place at Princeton. She went on to become a high-flying lawyer, then met the man who was to become her husband.

She never expected or planned to become First Lady. But that's who she is. And she says to children everywhere, you can achieve what you want in life. Michelle Obama is an example to her own children that anything is possible.

Michelle Obama: An American Story

This book chronicles Michelle Obama's early years, growing up in inner-city Chicago with a father who was living with multiple sclerosis. Her parents' early example left her very cynical about politics, believing it was a dirty game. She later thought that Barack was too nice to be serious about having a political career and that he would "come to his senses".

In 2009, First Lady Michelle Obama paid her first visit to Elizabeth Garrett Anderson College, a girls' secondary school in North London. The young people, many of whom were Black, were astonished to find that their special guest was the First Lady. And she told them to pursue their ambitions - there were no limits to what they could achieve. But perhaps more than her words, her presence was living proof of this.

      @LisaDH: I agree, Michelle Obama is an excellent role model and her marriage to the President gives us a very positive example of an African American marriage.

      I haven't read any books about her yet, but I'd like to. I think she's an incredibly classy and smart lady. She gave a great speech at the convention this year, and I love the fact that she and Barack seem to really love each other and their daughters and it's not just a marriage of political convenience or a third or fourth marriage or some other farce.
