Workshop Book Discussion on Michelle Obama's "Becoming"
Thursday, 25 July 2019 at 7 p.m.
La Feltrinelli - Via Quattro Spade, Verona
Michelle Obama's book has touched upon many important topics in today's society: race, politics, culture, parenthood, and perhaps most relevant to our network: gender equality and the role of the professional woman. We know Michelle Obama as the Former First Lady, as the wife of President Barack Obama and as a public figure that devoted her time in the White House to the obesity epidemic and healthy diets. But in her book, she tells a more detailed story of how she became the woman she is today, the obstacles she faced along the way and even how having a network of supportive women around you can lift you up and help you be successful.
We invite you to join us at Feltrinelli for this book discussion in English which will be led by Sandra Alesi of inlingua Verona, native English speaker and Verona PWN Board Member.
Please bring your business card to enter a lottery to win a €15 EUR gift card for Feltrinelli.
For those who would like to continue the discussion with a networking aperitivo, we will move to Navona Bar in Piazzetta Navona for an informal aperitif together.
