THE LIGHT WE CARRY Overcoming in Uncertain Times

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michelle Obama

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Michelle Obama performs the follow-up to her bestselling memoir, BECOMING, giving listeners another peek at her life. This time, Obama aims to inspire listeners to become their best selves, giving practical advice and using illustrations from her own life. Her deeply personal stories show listeners how she has worked her way through obstacles. Listeners also learn more about Obama's life post-White House and hear about how her family weathered the pandemic. Her warm, inviting voice sounds like she's sitting down with listeners at the kitchen table, sharing words of encouragement. What's more, Obama creates a lovely sense of kindness and emotional intimacy that make listeners feel hopeful and ready to go out and face our chaotic world. K.D.W.
