Michelle Obama Cancels Book Tour Dates to Attend George H.W. Bush's Funeral

Michelle Obama has announced that she will be postponing her book tour dates in Paris and Berlin to attend the funeral of George H.W. Bush.

“It’s important to me to join the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush’s exemplary life,” the former First Lady wrote on Twitter. “This will unfortunately preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin. I’ve been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I’m working to reschedule my trip for next year.”

She continued, “I hope readers and ticket holders will understand my decision regarding my desire to attend President Bush’s funeral, and join me in paying tribute to him and his tremendous contributions to our world.”

The former president passed away at the age of 94 on Friday (November 30).

Michelle‘s memoir, “Becoming,” is currently available to purchase.
