Adapted for young adults
'Dreams from My Father' is a revealing portrait of a young Black man asking questions about self-discovery and belonging - long before he became one of the most important voices in America. On his journey to adulthood from a humble background, Barack Obama forges his own path through trial and error while staying connected to his roots - determined to lead a life of purpose, service and authenticity. The son of a white American mother and a Black Kenyan father, Obama was born in Hawaii where he lived until he was six years old, when he moved with his mother and stepfather to Indonesia. At twelve, he returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents. Obama brings readers along as he faces the challenges of high school and college, living in New York, becoming a community organiser in Chicago and traveling to Kenya. Through these experiences, he forms an enduring commitment to leadership and justice.

Book:A promised land:2020 Book
Author: Obama, Barack
Year: 2020
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Viking
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: New York: Crown In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency - a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation's highest office.

Book:Renegades, born in the USA, dreams, myths, music:[2021] Book
Author: Springsteen, Bruce
Author: Obama, Barack
Year: [2021]
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Viking
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: "Originally published as an eight-episode series podcast, Renegades: Born in the USA, in 2021"--Title page 'Renegades' is a candid, revealing, and entertaining dialogue between President Barack Obama and legendary musician Bruce Springsteen that explores everything from their origin stories and career-defining moments to their country's polarized politics and the growing distance between the American Dream and the American reality. Filled with full-colour photographs and rare archival material, it is a compelling and beautifully illustrated portrait of two outsiders - one Black and one white - looking for a way to connect their unconventional searches for meaning, identity, and community with the American story itself.
