review by Renata Kenda

21 Oct. 2019. It was a rainy autumn evening, when we gathered to discuss our latest book “Becoming” by Michelle Obama. We had a fruitful discussion while enjoying the drinks and tasty nibbles next to a warm fireplace.

All of us joining this book club session liked the book, even those, who were not very in favor of

it when it was chosen. I was told this happens very rarely at the tíc Book club.

The autobiography of a former USA first lady triggered the discussion of several topics, from racism, inequality, family life to, of course, politics…

The book uncovered different aspects of the author’s life, providing a glimpse into her world from childhood into adulthood and her life in the White house. Although the book is rather big, it is a light read and certainly worth reading.
