Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., will sign copies of her best-selling memoir this evening in downtown Portland.
Free tickets for the event are available at Borders Books, 708 S.W. Third Ave., starting at 9 a.m. The signing there will be no reading is scheduled to run from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The quick-wristed senator, who reportedly averages about 1,000 autographs per hour, is expected to crank through 1,500 during her brief stint in Portland.
Depending on which reader's opinion you choose to believe, the former first lady's 576-page, ghostwritten 'Living History' is either inspiring, self-serving or safe.
Mediocre reviews have not prevented the memoir from selling more than 1.2 million copies to date, nearly enough to justify the $8.1 million advance that Clinton received.
Clinton, 55, served as first lady from 1993-2001 and was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2000.
