Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey and more to join Michelle Obama’s ‘The Light We Carry’ book tour

Former First Lady Michelle Obama announced Wednesday a star-studded list of guest moderators who will join her on her upcoming book tour in support of The Light we Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times. 

The tour kicks off in Washington, D.C on November 15-17 with Ellen Degeneres moderating the first two nights. As the trek continues in major cities across the U.S. throughout the month of December, Mrs. Obama’s guests include Gayle King in Philadelphia, Tyler Perry for two nights in Atlanta and Tracee Ellis Ross in San Francisco. The final stop in Los Angeles will feature Oprah Winfrey.  

“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.”

The book — which releases globally on tour kick-off day, November 15 — features a series of fresh stories and reflections on change, challenge and power. It includes Mrs. Obama’s belief that “when we light up for others we can illuminate the richness and potential of the world around us, discovering deeper truths and new pathways for progress.”
