Hillary Clinton announces Philadelphia stop on 2017 book tour

Josh Middleton

Former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is set to release her new memoir, What Happened, on September 12. To drum up interest in the book, which details the 2016 presidential election from her point of view, she’s embarking on a book tour that includes a stop in Philadelphia just after Thanksgiving.

A press release sent out this morning says that the event will find Clinton “pulling the curtain back on a story that’s personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny. She’ll take audiences with her on a first-person journey and bring you a highly personal perspective on what happened during the election and what’s next.”

It’s no surprise Clinton is rolling through Philly on the tour. She was chosen by more than 82 percent of local voters over Donald Trump’s 15.3 percent during the 2016 election, and she chose this city to hold her massive election-day-eve rally with the Obamas and Bruce Springsteen. And then of course Philadelphia is where she was nominated the first female presidential nominee of a major political party during the Democratic National Convention last July.

Philadelphia is the 12th stop on her tour, taking place November 30 at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts. Tickets won’t go on sale until September 18, but you can register for presale tickets by signing up here.
