Lectures & Discussions
Join staff from the National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library for a monthly discussion of portraits and prose. Each month, a Portrait Gallery educator will discuss a portrait from the collection. Following the portrait exploration, a DCPL librarian will lead a discussion of a book related to the image.

On February 19, we will discuss Becoming by Michelle Obama.

The release of Michele Obama's memoir is a perfect chance to connect her official portrait and her life story. The First Lady's new memoir takes readers from her childhood in Chicago to her career as a lawyer and executive to her role at the most famous address in the world. The memoir and the portrait will take you inside the life of the most public of figures as she moves into the next chapter of her life.
