Michelle Obama: A Life By Peter Slevin At The Schomburg

April 22, 2015

Michelle ObamaMichelle Obama: A Life by biographer Peter Slevin is the first comprehensive account of the life and times of Michelle Obama, a woman of achievement and purpose—and the most unlikely first lady in modern American history. With disciplined reporting and a storyteller’s eye for revealing detail, Peter Slevin follows Michelle to the White House from her working-class childhood on Chicago’s largely segregated South Side. A book-signing will follow the conversation.

Peter Slevin is a veteran national and international reporter who spent a decade on The Washington Post’s national staff before joining Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism in 2010 as an associate professor. Based in Chicago starting in 2004, he produced deadline work and deeply reported stories from more than two dozen states, focusing particularly on politics and the home front of the Iraq and Afghan wars.
