Clinton will travel to Milwaukee on Nov. 9 — one year and one day after she lost to President Trump on Election Day — to discuss “What Happened,” her upcoming memoir about her defeat.
Clinton’s book tour also takes her to Michigan, Florida, Georgia and Pennsylvania — all states she lost on Election Day.
The Democratic presidential nominee unexpectedly lost a number of close states, including Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Many have blamed Clinton’s election loss on her not spending enough time in those states, and particularly doing nearly no campaigning in Wisconsin, which had gone Democratic in the previous seven presidential elections.
Clinton’s tour begins in September with dates in Washington, D.C., and Toronto. In October, she heads to the Miami area, Montreal and Chicago, among other locations. November includes dates in New York, Atlanta, Boston and Philadelphia in addition to Milwaukee. The tour wraps up in December in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver.
Full information is listed on her book tour’s website.
Clinton last week released an excerpt from the book, in which she described President Trump as a “creep” during the presidential debates.
“What would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space?” she writes in the memoir.
Clinton is expected to address Russian interference in the election and the role of former FBI Director James Comey in her loss in the book.
The memoir will be released on Sept. 12.
