Born into a close knit family in Chicago, Michelle Robinson was a star student who graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law. Then in 1992, she married another promising young lawyer and the rest, as they say, is history. Just like President Barack Obama has changed the United States so has Michelle Obama, the self proclaimed "Mom in Chief." This compelling biography from the Who Was...? series is illustrated by New Yorker artist John O'Brien.
