ELLE USA saved the best for last! The journal is wrapping up the year with an exclusive interview with one of the most iconic First Ladys to ever grace The White House. The Michelle Obama ELLE December 2018 edition features Michelle discussing everything; from her marriage, being vulnerable and the importance of optimism.
In order to tell Obama’s story to the masses, ELLE recruited the queen of talk, Oprah Winfrey; to handle interview duties. This issue comes right before Michelle’s new book release, Becoming. Winfrey has already placed Obama’s book in her coveted book club. If you would like to learn more you can check it out at amazon.com/oprahsbookclub.
Speaking of Becoming Oprah says, “From the very first pages of ‘Becoming’ I knew I wanted EVERYONE to read it. I loved it so much I’ve already read it twice. I’ve known Michelle for 14 years, but this book is so open and vulnerable; I felt like she was in my ear. Book clubs everywhere — you’ll want to make this your next selection.”

So what are Oprah and Obama chatting about within the pages of ELLE? The magazine reveals,
“Living in the White House for eight years; Michelle Obama had staffers providing everything she could have possibly needed, except for time. ‘What I came to realize is that there was absolutely no time to reflect in the White House,’ she tells Oprah for ELLE’s cover interview. ‘We moved at such a breakneck pace from the moment we walked in those doors until the moment we left. It was day in and day out because we, Barack and I; really felt like we had an obligation to get a lot done.’
Now, with time to process two terms in office — a historic run of accomplishments and struggles — Obama has released her highly anticipated memoir, ‘Becoming.’ Ahead of her book release, the former FLOTUS gets real about her marriage to Barack; the threats made against her children; and life after the White House.”
