Hillary Clinton will be at Oblong Books in Rhinebeck Thursday, Dec. 7 to sign copies of her book What Happened?, her account of the 2016 election. The event begins at 6 p.m.
The event was announced Aug. 28 and the tickets, which cost $33, sold out that same day.
On her decision to do a postmortem campaign book, Clinton writes:
“I don’t have all the answers and this isn’t a comprehensive account of the 2016 race. That isn’t for me to write. I have too little distance and too great a stake in it. Instead, this is my story. I want to pull back the curtain on an experience that was exhilarating, joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling. Writing this wasn’t easy. Every day that I was a candidate for president, I knew that millions of people were counting on me and I couldn’t bear the idea of letting them down. But I did. I couldn’t get the job done. And I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”
