Michelle Obama Cancels Book Tour To Attend George H.W. Bush Funeral
Former President Barack Obama and first lady  Michelle Obama will attend former President George H.W. Bush funeral later this week.

Mrs. Obama, who has been on tour promoting her book, is putting her tour on hold to make the funeral.

“It’s important for me to join the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush’s exemplary life. This will unfortunately preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin,” Obama tweeted Sunday. “I’ve been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I’m working to reschedule my trip for next year.”
