Babes + Books is the the official Book Club of Babes Who Hustle.

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Our ambassadors are responsible for coordinating club venue locations (this could be a coffee shop, brewery, public library—wherever!), communicating with all members in their area, and leading each of the four discussions (with questions we provide as a guideline.) We are seeking responsible, organized leaders with a voracious love of reading and a heart for their local community.
