Jake Tapper, ABCNews reveals that First Lady Michelle Obama is reading an advance copy of “The Grace of Silence” by National Public Radio’s Michele Norris.

Norris set out to write a book about “the hidden conversation on race” in the US but as she did she learned a number of family secrets, including her father being shot by Birmingham police not long after his discharge from service in World War II.

Asked for reaction to the news that the First Lady is reading her book, Norris emailed “Wow.”
