WASHINGTON - If you want to go to Michelle Obama's book signing Monday in Northwest D.C. and don't already have a ticket, you might have to pull some strings.
Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW, says tickets to the highly-anticipated appearance by the former First Lady sold out just a few hours after going on sale Saturday morning.
Those interested were asked to buy a copy of Obama's memoir Saturday morning for admission to Monday's event.
Politics and Prose has hosted acclaimed authors ranging from Margaret Atwood to Jia Tolentino, but is a smaller venue than Obama is used to. Her initial book tour for Becoming sold out stadiums including Capital One Arena.
Monday's book signing is for the one-year anniversary of Becoming's release.
