Rory Gilmore Visited Michelle Obama at the White House, and You Just Know They Talked About Books


Proust and Ferrante and Austen and Shakespeare, oh my! As if the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival didn't need any additional press, a very grown-up Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) stopped by the White House to chat with Michelle Obama about every possible book under the sun as well as bestow some blueberry Pop-Tarts from her mother Lorelai. The power duo discussed all things literature pegged to a trip for the First Lady's “Let Girls Learn” initiative, which, sadly, the Secret Service wouldn't allow Rory to partake in. (Blasphemy!) Because everyone needs a good book recommendation, even FLOTUS herself.
