A longtime Atlanta resident received free tickets to Michelle Obama’s book tour at State Farm Arena on Saturday.

Willie Mae Hardy, who turned 111 in March, received two complimentary tickets courtesy of Atlanta City Council member Natalyn Mosby Archibong, other local elected officials and neighbors, city officials announced Friday afternoon.
