Obama Moves: Michelle Obama Nominated for Award, Barack Obama Heads to Canada
Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, has had a stellar year and broken sales records. Now, she has been nominated for a Shorty Award in the literature category. The Shorty Awards is an award show of a different kind that recognizes social media stars and influencers, brands, as well as organizations on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat, and more. The awards ceremony, which will be held May 5th, will celebrate the who’s who of influencers and changemakers. They will also present a “Best in Activism” award. That category includes Colin Kaepernick, Bernice A. King, and Monica Lewinsky. Meanwhile, former President Barack Obama announced that he’s heading to Canada in March. The tour, "A Conversation With Barack Obama," initially announced Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome as the sole Canadian stop. Last week, he added a second stop at Winnipeg's Bell MTS Place. That date has been set for March 4th. More on Michelle Obama’s award nomination here.
