Former First Lady Michelle Obama is coming to BC next month.

Obama will participate in a moderated conversation event in Victoria on Tuesday, March 31 at 7 pm at Save On Foods Memorial Centre.

The event is sponsored by The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce.

“The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce is very proud to welcome former First Lady Michelle Obama to Victoria,” said Catherine Holt, Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce CEO. “She is an inspiring leader and role model to so many. And because of her strong values and true convictions, she continues to drive important change in society.”

Obama served as First Lady of the United States from 2009 to 2017, during which she launched and led four key initiatives: Let’s Move!, to address the challenge of childhood obesity; Joining Forces, to support veterans, service members and their families; Reach Higher, to inspire young people to seek higher education; and Let Girls Learn, to help adolescent girls around the world go to school.

In 2018, Michelle Obama published her memoir, Becoming, which sold more copies than any other book published in the United States in 2018, achieving that status in just 15 days and rising to the #1 slot on The New York Times Best Seller list.

Tickets to the Victoria event go on sale this Wednesday, February 26.
