History. Literary Criticism. Women's Studies. Nonfiction. HTML:A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham
Michelle Obamas legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obamas equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for womens rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, The New York Times Style Magazine featureNick Haramis has assembled nineteen essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leadersall of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obamas extraordinary example of grace in power.
Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne tha God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries. Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first ladys impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girlsone in training to be a boxertalk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves.
Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman.

Advance praise for Courage Is Contagious
Courage Is Contagious reminds us of the fortitude, brilliance, grace, humility, compassion, and humor of a woman we were so crazy lucky to have serve as first lady. This is an exceptional celebration of a most exceptional American.J.J. Abrams
The first lady planted a powerful new knowledge inside of each of us. When you read this book you realize its still in there and always will be.Miranda July, author of The First Bad Man and No One Belongs Here More Than You
The diversity of the voices in Courage Is Contagious captures perfectly why Michelle Obama is so remarkable. If we can all see our best selves in her so vividly, how can we really be that different from each other? This glorious little book will give you goosebumps as it takes you on a journey celebrating one of the most important people alive.iO Tillett Wright, author of Darling Days.

This is a quick read, with 19 short essays by a wide variety of people telling how Michelle Obama came onto their radar and more specifically, the impact she had on them. Some essays were stronger than others, which isn't a surprise. From Lena Dunham, to Gloria Steinem, Alice Waters, Patton Oswalt, Jason Wu, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Tracee Ellis Ross and two 9th graders, as well.

A lovely, perhaps overlooked, detail are the sketches that open each piece, illustrated by Joana Avillez. It was only when I looked at them one after the other, apart from the essays , did I realize that it was a progression, almost like those old-fashioned flip-books. The theme of them is a garden, from empty earth to seed to full fruition and full cycle. Like Michelle's organic garden. They are black and white ink (or maybe charcoal?) sketches. Just beautiful.

I did mark quite a few passages but the one I will include here is from Alice Waters, because she speaks of the garden and sums up the book well, in my opinion:

"The food from the garden became a metaphor for the values of the First Couple, from welcoming guests to helping neighbors in need. Her vision extended well beyond the boundaries of the White House plot.... Michelle Obama's White House garden was so much more important than I could have imagined. It was a living, growing representation of the bounty and generosity and diversity of the United States - and of her own large-hearted, far-seeing vision for the future of food in this country."

And because the book was compiled and published this year, a few of the essayists did mention the current administration and some comparisons were made, but they were brief, and did not darken the book, in my opinion. It remains a solid tribute to a woman who stands head and shoulders above the current admin and yet, remains firmly *of the people*. ( )
