To promote The Light We Carry, Obama embarked on an engaging six-city book tour where she spoke with celebrity guests — Tyler PerryConan O’Brien and Ellen DeGeneres — who shared their stories about being a source of light for others, building true friendships, finding inner strength and more.

In honor of Obama's final stop on the tour for her bestselling book, the former first lady and Oprah Winfrey are joining forces for a documentary event that will premiere on Netflix. Obama and Winfrey's candid, wide-ranging discussion will give viewers a front-row seat to Obama's stories about her childhood, her time in the White House, menopause, social issues, and romance. The Light We Carry: Michelle Obama & Oprah Winfrey is coming to screens globally on Tuesday, April 25.

If you prefer audiobooks, there's another way to enjoy Obama's book ahead of the Netflix special. Audible and Obama teamed up for Michelle Obama: The Light Podcast which was released last month in early March. Expanding to a different medium, The Light podcast features more in-depth conversations with celebrities and close friends including Gayle King, Hoda Kotb and David Letterman.
