Through her commitment to her family and community, professional pursuits and personal passions, First Lady Michelle Obama is redefining possibilities and opportunities for women in this century. ESSENCE has chronicled Mrs. Obama before she ventured into the national spotlight. Now, in First Lady Michelle Obama, ESSENCE editors will recapture those early moments and illuminate her current role as First Lady today in a special commemorative book that charts one of the most incredible personal journeys in American history. Essence (2013), English, Hardcover: 112 pages.
A Salute to Michelle Obama documents the First Lady's life from the South Side of Chicago to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. This lavishly illustrated title will explore the social, cultural, and political impact of the First Lady's education, health, and military family initiatives; her national and international causes and campaigns, and her broad fashion sense that connects with both Seventh Avenue and Main Street.
Like the best-sellers The Obamas in the White House: Reflections on Family, Faith and Leadership, and The Obamas: Portrait of American's New First Family, the new book from ESSENCE editors, will combine stunning images of the First Lady in and out of the White House, with the President and her family, along with memorable quotes she's provided exclusively to the magazine and from her most popular speeches and addresses.
