Hillary Clinton in Austin
A public appearance around the time your book hits the shelves is one thing. A public appearance around the time your book hits the shelves when you are the former secretary of state, former U.S. senator from New York and possible Democratic nominee for president named Hillary Clinton is something else entirely.
Clinton will visit the Long Center for the Performing Arts on June 20 to deliver an address. Clinton’s book "Hard Choices," about her time as secretary of state, will be out June 10.
Tickets will be available to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday. Details: www.InnovationAE.com.
