Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama will feature candid conversations with a selection of famous friends and family members moderating each event.

10 percent of the seats in each venue will be given away for free to fans and local community members who may not be able to afford tickets.

"I've spent the last year and a half reflecting on my story as deeply and honestly as I could, and now I’m thrilled to travel the country and do the same with readers this fall," Obama tells
"I hope that this tour will inspire others to reflect upon and share their own stories—all the joys and sorrows, all the scars and renewals — so that together, we can better recognize that each of us, in our own way, is in a constant process of becoming."
