Former First Lady Michelle Obama will meet with young adults and promote her autobiography during a visit to San Jose on Friday.
Obama's book "Becoming" follows her childhood, education and careers in law and nonprofits, mapping the influences that led her to work with disadvantaged and overlooked youth.
She will speak Friday at a workshop hosted by the Silicon Valley chapter of Public Allies and recount the organization's impact on her life when she served as its executive director in Chicago in 1993. The event is not open to the public.
Public Allies, a 25-year-old nonprofit, focuses on guiding young people into education and leadership roles.
"For the first time in my life, really, I felt I was doing something immediately meaningful, directly impacting the lives of others while also staying connected to both my city and my culture," Obama writes in her book.
The workshop will take place at 2 p.m. at Seven Trees Library and Community Center at 3590 Cas Drive in San Jose.
Her book tour will include an event at the SAP Center in San Jose at 8 p.m. Friday.
