Bill Clinton Plans Seattle Book Tour Stop in June

The former president has co-authored a novel, and tickets for his visit go on sale this Friday.

Who better to write a thrilling novel about a sitting president’s disappearance than a former POTUS and the author with the record for the most #1 New York Times best-sellers? Former President Bill Clinton and fiction novelist James Patterson did just that for their upcoming joint novel, The President is Missing. Hitting bookshelves on June 4, it’s “a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power,” according to The Washington Post.

On June 30, Seattleites can hear Clinton speak about the novel when he travels to McCaw Hall as part of his book tour. He’ll discuss the details of writing and researching the book, as well as its relevancy to current events.

Tickets for Clinton’s visit to McCaw Hall go on sale Friday, April 6 at 10:00 a.m. at www.uniquelives.com/bill-clinton or by phone at (844) 827-8118. Tickets start at $69. VIP seats—which include a copy of The President is Missing—range from $169 to $1,500 for a meet and greet.
