by Auma Obama - Memoir, Nonfiction

While her younger brother Barack grew up in the U.S. and Indonesia, Auma Obama’s childhood played out in a remote village in Kenya. They met for the first time in the 1980s, and built a lasting relationship that led to travels together in Kenya, research into their family history, and ultimately Auma’s support for her brother’s political career and eventual bid for the U.S. presidency.
