First came the unlikely news that self-help contrarian Dr. Jordan Peterson is touring music venues, and now we’ve gotten word that Michelle Obama will be engaging in what's being promoted as an “intimate conversation” at the 20,000-capacity Pepsi Center.

The fondly remembered First Lady will be appearing Dec. 13 as part of a speaking tour to promote her forthcoming memoir Becoming.

“It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes and worries” she writes on her Facebook page. “It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it — blemishes and all.”

Tickets for the Pepsi Center event will go on sale to the general public 10 am. Friday, Sept, 21, at becomingmichelleobama.com.

How nerdy are you? We all may dress up as our favorite superheroes or Harry Potter characters from time to time, but it takes a next-level nerd to write poetry about their favorite pieces of pop culture. Luckily, plenty such poets call Colorado Springs home. Friday, locals will take the mic to perform their own geeky verse, and all are welcome to join in on the fun. The event will start with a workshop hosted by superstar Colorado poet Ashley Cornelius, followed by an open mic with Michael Ferguson (aka Skillzilla). At the end of the evening, stick around for a haiku battle hosted by Chris Beasley. That’s right, nothing nerdier than poetry geeks who can construct haiku out of thin air. To top it all off, there’ll be a costume contest, so get cosplaying!
