Hillary Rodham Clinton will make a speaking appearance during BookExpo at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on June 1, 2017. This year’s BookExpo, a trade event for people in the book industry,  will take place May 31 to June 2 at the same location. The fourth annual BookCon, a fan event for book consumers, will also be held at the Javis Convention Center on June 3 and June 4, 2017. Both events are produced by ReedPOP.

Clinton’s speaking engagement is billed as “An Evening with Hillary Rodham Clinton” and will take place on BookExpo’s Main Stage from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Clinton’s appearance will be a separately ticketed event with limited availability open to registered BookExpo attendees only. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis.

After serving as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State (from 2009 to 2013), Clinton authored the 2014 bestselling memoir “Hard Choices.” In 2016, she became the first woman to be nominated for U.S. president by a major political party. Prior to being Secretary of State, Clinton was a U.S. Senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, and was First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Clinton is also the author of 2016’s “Stronger Together: A Blueprint for America’s Future” (which she co-authored with Tim Kaine) and the 1996 bestseller “It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us.” Her next book (title to be announced) will be published by Simon & Schuster in September 2017.

As previously reported, BookExpo 2017 has also lined up superstar author Stephen King, who will appear for the first time at the event. King will be part of the Adult Book & Author Breakfast on June 1.
