Rock On: Michelle Obama book tour is reaching high

NEW YORK (AP) — There has never been a book tour quite like the one planned for Michelle Obama’s “Becoming.”

Starting in November, she will make stops everywhere from the Pepsi Center in Denver to American Airlines Center in Dallas. Popular authors for years have been likened to rock stars, but Obama is the first to promote her book on a scale common for a top musical performer.

On Friday, publicity directors for other publishing houses could not think of another time when venues with capacities of 15,000 or higher were used for an author.
