“Escribir ‘Becoming’ fue una profunda experiencia personal”, mencionó la ex primera dama el domingo, y continuó: “Hablo sobre mis raíces y de cómo una niña de Chicago encuentra su voz. Espero que mi viaje inspire a los lectores a encontrar el valor para conseguir todo a lo que aspiran”.

A principios de marzo de 2017, el Financial Times publicó que la expareja presidencial había firmado un contrato récord con Penguin Random House para la publicación de un libro cada uno. Según la información del periódico, la editorial aceptó pagar más de 60 millones de dólares para asegurarse los derechos de ambos libros.

En un gesto muy generoso, un millón de copias se donaron en nombre de la familia Obama a los niños necesitados, informó la editorial en su comunicado.

Michelle Obama ya había publicado hace unos años el libro “American Grown”, sobre jardinería y alimentación.

You Never Know What Who’s Going to Say!
You last saw her with the Grinch when she was just two.
But ever wonder what happened to Cindy Lou Who?
It’s 40 years later – come see the results.
In a holiday show that is just for adults!

WHO’S HOLIDAY! is a wildly funny and heartfelt adults-only comedy that tells the story of Cindy Lou Who as she recalls that fateful Christmas Eve when she first met the Grinch…and what happened next! The little tyke has become a bottle-blonde adult who spends her days in a trailer atop Mount Crumpit. Only those with a naughty sense of humor will be ready for this holiday offering that dirties up Christmas while ultimately reveling in its spirit.

WHO’S WHO?
You’ve seen her as Patty Andrews in “Sisters of Swing”, as Red Girl in “Shout! The Mod Musical”, and as the host of every sing-along at 3Below Theaters and The Retro Dome. Now, see producer/playwright/performer Shannon Guggenheim in this hilarious and delightfully naughty one-woman show where she’ll sing, dance, and rhyme her way through the holidays.

Tickets: $36 – $45   Online at www.3Belowtheaters.com or 408.404.7711

AGE ADVISORY
Although inspired by the Dr. Seuss classic, “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”, Who’s Holiday is NOT a family show. This is an adults-only event not for the faint of heart. Leave the kids, and those easily offended, at home.
