Courage Is Contagious: And Other Reasons to Be Grateful for Michelle Obama Read Online Free - A collection of never-before-published essays celebrating a First Lady whose impact will be felt for years to come, featuring a stunning array of acclaimed contributors
Michelle Obama's legacy transcends categorization; her cultural imprint is as nuanced as it is indelible. She used her time in the White House to fight for women, minorities, and health and education advocates. At the same time, her own genre-busting style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress however they wanted. In this tribute to the former First Lady, T: The New York Times Style Magazine editor Nick Haramis assembles twenty original essays from prize-winning writers, Hollywood stars, celebrity chefs, and politicos, all of whom have been moved and influenced by her extraordinary grace in power. This uplifting book uncovers the many layers of Michelle Obama as she continues to be a role model and icon in the age of Donald Trump.

Very inspiring. Makes one really think about the mark one leaves on the world. What do people say about you when your not around.
Summation, Michelle Obama is a class act. She had a huge impact on so many people, from the young to the old. What you find in this book is their stories.

I put this on hold only because it featured essays on Michelle Obama. There were a few good essays but some were more about names (Lena Dunham who also published this book).

This collection of seventeen essays is not intended to be a biography of Michelle Obama, many of which can be found here in LAPL’s catalog, rather this is an appreciation of who she is as a person, who also happened to be First Lady of the United States. The essays are from students and from work...

You know you need to read this, and if you don't already know that, you don't need to read it. I love Michelle Obama, and her not being First Lady makes me a little weepy. If you don't feel that way, fuck you. She's classy, I'm not.

I received my copy free through Goodreads Giveaways. My copy is an uncorrected ARC, so a couple of chapters are blank.
I loved the chapter written by Adasendis and Laura (8th graders) for who Michelle Obama was a role model of working hard and doing better. Gloria Steinem wrote, "We will never hav...

A true celebration of an incredible woman. Highlights include moving essays from two high school students who grew up knowing only the Obamas in office. Not all of the authors added fresh and interesting perspectives to the collection (do we really care how Michelle Obama has affected Anna Wintou...
