Sarah Palin "Going Rogue" Book Tour Dates
UPDATE, 11/20/2009, 7:50PM - see updated info at end of this post for details about the book signing on 11/21/2009. You better go to sleep soon so you can wake up early.
I was able to find information on Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue" Book Tour Dates. How?, well, a Political News Website linked to a blog, which linked to Sarah Palin's Facebook page. So there really was no scoop on this, it was information that was already available on the internet. So, go to Sarah Palin's Facebook page and look for the Note with the Subject Line "Going Rogue Book Tour Dates Through Thanksgiving". For those of you in the Pittsburgh area, she will be at the Sam's Club in Washington, PA on Saturday, November 21st, from 11:00AM to 2:00PM.
80 Trinity Point Drive
Washington, PA 15301
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Borders Books and Music
1000 Hylan Drive
Rochester, NY 14623
6:00 – 9:00 PM
She is scheduled to be in Rochester, NY the same day, 4 hours later at 6:00PM. This puzzles me because I used to travel from Monroeville to Buffalo, NY and it took me about 4 hours. Rochester is a good one hour away from Buffalo, so her bus driver will really have to drive fast to get there on time. Sarah Palin also stated on her Facebook page that she will start using Twitter once the Book Tour starts. Check her Facebook page for any updates or changes to the schedule.
UPDATE, 11/20/2009, 7:25 PM:
1. I read this from the Observer-Reporter with more specific info about the book signing.
2. This morning around 10:30AM, I called the Sam's Club at Washington, PA and was told the following: 1000 wristbands will be handed out starting at 6:00AM on 11/21. People are allowed to start gathering at 9:00PM on 11/20 near the Tire Entrance. You must have a Sam's Club membership or sign up for a membership. One wristband allows an autograph for two books. If you bring your own books, you must bring a receipt showing they were purchased at WalMart or Sam's Club. Only "Going Rogue" books will be signed. Sorry, no Terrible Towels. The autographs will not be personalized, so no to "Steely McBeam". Sarah Palin will be signing a specific page in her book.
3. I found this out from Channel 10 TV in Columbus, OH which is the second stop today (the first stop was Cincinnati): For the Columbus Book Signing, only 500 wristbands will be handed out.
I really want to go, but I have to consider my health. I am recovering from a cold and can not stand outside too long or my sinuses, throat, and nose will start acting up. I also have plantar fascitis, so I can not stand too long on my feet. If her book tour was in the spring or summer, I would definitely show up. I hope to meet her another time.
