Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary Clinton Comes to Milwaukee this November 

Our 67th secretary of state and former first lady reminds us that it’s more important than ever to keep fighting for what’s right.

Hold onto your pantsuits. Because Hillary Clinton is embarking on a national book tour to promote her new memoir, and she’s making a stop in Milwaukee.

On November 9, Clinton – the first woman in the United States to receive a presidential nominee from a major political party – makes an appearance at the Riverside, where she’ll be reading from her new memoir, What Happened, and fielding audience questions.

Her book, $30, will hit local store shelves on September 12, well in advance of the former senator’s Cream City visit. And, according to publisher Simon & Schuster, it’ll delve into Clinton’s thoughts and feelings during the turbulent 2016 election cycle and on the campaign trail.

“She describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterwards. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet — the rituals, relationships and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.”

Anyone interested in attending the event, which will undoubtedly sell out, can sign up to purchase special pre-sale tickets through September 4 at HillaryClintonBookTour.com. Pre-sale begins Wednesday, September 6, And general tickets will officially go on sale Monday, September 18, at 10 a.m. on the Pabst Theater’s site.
