Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich are scheduled to appear soon at Barnes & Noble in The Villages to promote their new books.
Palin’s appearance will be at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 18. Her book is Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.
Palin is no stranger to The Villages. When she was John McCain’s freshly minted running mate, she held her first public rally Sept. 21, 2008 at Lake Sumter Landing Market Square. The rally attracted thousands from around the state and nation.
On Nov. 24, 2009, Palin was interviewed live by Gretchen Carlson of FOX & Friends from the parking lot of Barnes & Noble as part of her “Going Rogue” book tour.
Gingrich will appear with his wife, Callista, at 3 p.m. Dec. 1. His latest book is Breakout: Pioneers of the Future, Prison Guards of the Future and the Epic Battle that will Decide America.
Newt and Callista Gingrich last made an appearance in The Villages on Jan. 29, 2012 on the eve of the presidential primary in Florida. Gingrich lost the GOP primary two days later to Mitt Romney.
Callista Gingrich will sign copies of her new children’s book, Yankee Doodle Dandy, which is the third in a series.
