on the road

LA Times: Michelle Obama will be in Los Angeles on Monday to boost support for military families and to raise money for her husband’s reelection campaign.

In the morning, the first lady will attend a discussion moderated by writer-producer J.J. Abrams about how Hollywood can tell stories of today’s military families through film and television…

The Beverly Hills event is being hosted by several entertainment industry guilds, including the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.

Later, Obama will film a guest appearance on “iCarly,” a Nickelodeon television show whose lead character is the daughter of a military officer serving oversees. It’s part of her effort to bring attention to the families of American servicemen and women.

The first lady also will attend two fundraisers in Los Angeles, before flying to the Bay Area for more fundraising events.

Her trip to California is one of her first solo fundraising trips since President Obama launched his reelection campaign in April.

LA Daily News: The First Lady plans to make additional California stops Tuesday in Oakland and San Francisco before returning to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

      I think it’s one of the most beautiful photos of her I’ve ever seen. I think it resonates so much because it really captures so much of who she is – her beauty, her knowing, her sweetness, her style, her confidence. Just stunning.

    Love J.J. Abrams work and would have loved to attend this discussion to FLOTUS. This should be interesting. I hope there is video of the event later.
