Palin making the rounds
Friday, November 12, 2010
For her next book tour, Sarah Palin will again skip some of the nation’s biggest cities.
But no traveling by bus this time. It’s airplanes all the way.
HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor will be on the road from Nov. 23 to Dec. 3, with a break for Thanksgiving, to promote “American by Heart,” subtitled “Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.” The book, coming out Nov. 23, is her first since the million-selling memoir “Going Rogue.”
Palin, 46, will be joined by her husband, Todd, and other family members. As with “Going Rogue,” she will not make appearances in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco or other cities where Democrats are more in favor. She will spend little time on either coast, sticking mostly to the South, Southwest and Midwest.
The tour begins at a Barnes & Noble in Phoenix, in the home state of her 2008 running mate, Sen. John McCain. Other stops include Dillons Marketplace in Andover, Kan.; a Sam’s Club in Little Rock, Ark.; and a Costco in Brentwood, Tenn. Palin will finish at a Books-A-Million in Columbia, S.C.
