Hi. Here's a vague update. We apologize for the lack of specific details at this time.
Yes, Clinton will be in store to sign copies of his book, Giving on November 1. Yes, just a signing.
No, we haven't verified all the details yet, but will be able to in the next couple of days.
Please be patient with us. This opportunity fell into our laps with very little warning.
So, here are all the signing guidelines, from the Events team:
Former President Bill Clinton will visit University Book Store as part of his national book tour for Giving. He will be signing copies of his new book for readers beginning at 8pm. Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World is an inspiring look at how individual endeavors can save lives and solve problems, and it offers compelling examples of citizen activism at work in the world today. A portion of President Clinton's proceeds from the book will be donated to charities and nonprofits that are doing their part to change the world. When you come to University Book Store to purchase a copy of Giving, you will receive a voucher. Hang on to it and when you arrive at the signing, you will be given a wristband to stand in the signing line. Your book will be available then. It is important to arrive early, as there will be a limited number of wristbands. Having a signing ticket is NOT a guarantee of getting a book signed. President Clinton’s time will be limited, and only customers with wristbands will have the opportunity to get a signed book.
* NO items will be permitted in line past bag check. (No cameras, pens, photos, other books, gifts, phones, etc.)
* One wristband equals one signing.
* All items/bags must be checked. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
* Only copies of Giving will be signed.
* Signing guidelines are subject to change.
Giving book vouchers are available only at the U District store. To receive a voucher, you must purchase the book in person. Phone orders and web orders are NOT eligible for the voucher, and we cannot place vouchers on hold. Vouchers are limited to one per customer.
