Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s stop in Tacoma on March 24 drew the largest crowds yet on her cross-country tour, “Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama.”

Before her appearance in front of a sold-out crowd of 19,000 people at the Tacoma Dome that evening, Mrs. Obama had a sit-down chat at the Tacoma Public Library with 13 members of a women’s book club to discuss her best-selling memoir “Becoming.” Then, it was off to the Dome for an evening with moderator Jimmy Kimmel, where she talked about writing her book, her years in the White House and her life now with former president Barack Obama free from the constraints of their duties in D.C. A number of local celebrities were in the audience, including Sue Bird, Ciara, Russell Wilson, Eddie Vedder and more.

“Who are you becoming?” Mrs. Obama asked the jubilant crowd, setting the tone for a night of self-empowerment, joy and love expressed for this popular First Lady who continues to make an impact on the American people.
