When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to Michelle’s fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.

Then they moved in.

In The Obamas, Jodi Kantor— Washington correspondent at the New York Times— takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady.

Kantor will be interviewed by New York Times columnist David Brooks. Book signing to follow.
