Happy New Year, readers! We’re so excited for another year of discovering great books and culture with you all, not to mention sharing the work of an amazing artist each month! There will be printables, gorgeous photos, interviews, and fun discussions. Thanks for being here!

Without further ado, we’re starting this year off with a bang with our former first lady’s memoir, BecomingFrom her humble beginnings in Southside Chicago to her days in the White House, Michelle Obama shares the many life experiences that have shaped her. She’s humble, funny, and honest, as she observes what America is today and frankly asks each of us who we want to become. I started reading it over the break after listening to Oprah’s stellar interview on her podcast and I wasn’t able to put it down! We had another book lined up for January but I couldn’t think of a better book to inspire a fresh start to a new year. Her theme of “becoming” reinforces the idea that we are constantly evolving and can become anything we want to be. It’s so inspiring.

Follow along with us on @larsbookclub, where we’ll discuss quotes or sections from Becoming all month! Stay tuned for artwork later this month as well. Enjoy!
