NEW - From Michelle Obama…


Michelle Obama announced her new book 'The Light We Carry' to much excitement and hype recently. Her previous book, 'Becoming' was a bestseller so there are high expectations for this follow up.

It has been described as comes an inspirational volume of personal insight and wisdom, aimed at illuminating the complexities of relationships, communities and identity for everyone.

This book releases on the 15th November this year, however it will be half price if you decide to pre order it. We recommend pre-ordering this one as it is likely to sell out upon release.
