‘Together we can create something powerful’ – watch Michelle Obama introducing her new book The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times
 More about the book!

Michelle Obama’s new book, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times, is out now.

In her inspiring follow-up to Becoming, former United States First Lady shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world.

Drawing from her experiences as a mother, daughter, spouse, friend, and First Lady, she shares the habits and principles she has developed to successfully overcome various obstacles – the earned wisdom that helps her continue to ‘become’.

Out now from Penguin Random House.

In the video below, Obama outlines her hopes for the book:

The Light We Carry is about recognising the flame that burns inside each and every one of us, and understanding that each of us can kindle that spark for ourselves through even the toughest times.

‘It’s about understanding the power of our own stories, I talk about this all all the time, but I’m gonna dig in more in this book.

‘I talk about maintaining calmness and perspective in the face of fear and anxiety. I also talk about how important it is to help others to see their own light as well.

‘Throughout my life I’ve developed what I’m calling a set of tools that help me get through. I think we all have these tools, I’m just sharing what I use, because so much of what we need is already within us. That’s what I’ve come to learn.

‘I think together we can create something powerful and help us refocus our energies on something more positive.

‘This book offers a great beginning to a broader conversation.’
