Hillary Clinton to visit St. Paul on book-signing tour


Former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton will make a stop in St. Paul later this month as part of her nationwide book tour to promote her new memoir, "Hard Choices." The book is an account of Clinton's years serving as secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

Clinton will sign copies of the book at Common Good Books in St. Paul on Sunday, July 20, from 2:15-4:15 p.m.

"This is big. I can't think of anything bigger," said David Enyeart, the store's event manager, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Enyeart said Clinton will be in the Twin Cities for another event and wanted to expand her book tour. Common Good Books is owned by Garrison Keillor, host of the public radio program "A Prairie Home Companion" and a prominent Democrat.

People who want to attend must buy a ticket at the store, in person only beginning on July 12. Tickets will not be available online or over the phone.

They cost $35, and include a copy of "Hard Choices." Customers who bought a copy of the book at Common Good Books before July 8 will get a complimentary ticket if they show proof of their purchase.

Clinton will only sign one copy of the book per customer, and will not sign other books or memorabilia, according to the bookstore. Bags will be checked and only wallets and cellphones will be allowed, according to the Pioneer Press.

The store will be closed to other business on the day of Clinton's appearance, according to the Star Tribune.

Clinton is prepared to autograph up to 1,000 books during the two-hour time span, says the Star Tribune.

"She can do it," Enyeart told the paper. "She's been practicing."

Clinton has been on tour for the past several weeks and has had some notable exchanges with fans and various celebrities. ABC News compiled a list of "7 surprising moments" on her tour. And Politico looks at what we've learned about Clinton, who's widely believed to be considering a run for president in 2016.
