Hillary Clinton is still a big hit in the book publishing world despite losing last year's election to President Donald Trump, with her latest effort scheduled for release by Simon & Schuster in October.
The title of the latest memoir remains a secret, but there is apparently plenty of enthusiasm for the former first lady and secretary of state after selling out a BookExpo engagement at Javits Convention Center in New York City last Thursday, according to the New York Post.
Clinton took the BookExpo 2017's main stage at the "An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton" appearance. The former U.S. senator from New York currently has four books to her credit including "Stronger Together" (2016), "Hard Choices" (2014), "Living History" (2003), and "It Takes A Village" (2006).
Last September, The New York Times reported that "Stronger Together," fell flat during its first week of sales during the presidential campaign with just 2,912 copies being purchased. "Hard Choices" sold more than 85,000 in its first week.
"Stronger Together," which she authored with running mate Tim Kaine presented their 2016 election "agenda in full, relating stories from the American people and outlining the Clinton/Kaine campaign's plans," according to the book's blurb, The Independent noted.
"Living History," which focused on her tumultuous years in the White House with husband President Bill Clinton, sold six times as many copies as "Hard Choices" in the first week, according to the Times. The newspaper said that first week sales typically account for around a third of the total sold.
The Post reported that daughter Chelsea Clinton will appear at BookCon Sunday to sign copies of her new book, "She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World."
