Hillary Clinton Talks 'What Happened' in Ann Arbor on Book Tour


ANN ARBOR - Ready for a behind-the-scenes look at Hillary Clinton's campaign and the November 2016 loss to Republican Donald Trump for the presidency? The former first lady, U.S. senator, secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate is stopping through Ann Arbor as part of a nationwide tour to promote her new book, "What Happened."

"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net," Clinton wrote in the book's introduction. "Now I'm letting my guard down."

Simon & Schuster, publisher of Clinton's book, says it is an intense look at her campaign as the first woman to be a major party presidential nominee and a campaign featuring "rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows."

The book, published Sept. 12, is available for pre-order on the website http://hilliaryclintonmemoir.com.

Tickets to see Hillary Clinton speak at the University of Michigan's Hill Auditorium on Oct. 24 are now on sale via Ticketmaster, with front-row seats going for nearly $600. The pre-sale is happening now, with the public sale set to begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 18.

VIP ticket packages are being offered for anywhere from $372 to $597, with the most expensive ticket including a front-row seat with a souvenir laminate, a signed first-edition copy of Clinton's new book and a pre-event photo op and formal meet and greet. Those who opt for the VIP experience must be at the venue by 6:45 p.m., with the photo and receiving line starting at 7 p.m. sharp.

MLive.com reports that Clinton didn't make any appearances in Ann Arbor during her 2016 presidential campaign, but she has visited multiple times in the past, including as first lady in the 1990s when she was greeted by loyal members of her fan club in Ann Arbor, at one point said to be the biggest chapter of the Hillary Clinton fan club in the world.
