Fans Wait Overnight for Sarah Palin’s Brentwood Book Signing

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 2, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Hundreds of people attended Governor Palin’s book signing at her book signing at Costco in Brentwood, Tennessee yesterday.  One person spent 42 hours in the parking lot waiting for Governor Palin in spite of the rain and cold.  According to Tina Andreadis from HarperCollins, the book tour stops have averaged 800 to 1000 people per stop.

Bonnie Burch at the Tennessean reports:

Moments after leaving the executive-style wooden desk where Sarah Palin signed their copies of her new book, Nancy Henrich of Nashville and Janice Kay of Brentwood hugged each other as their eyes brimmed with tears.  

The two women didn’t even know each other early Wednesday morning before stepping into a long line of Palin fans awaiting a chance to catch a moment with the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor.

But after waiting hours in a cold Costco parking lot, the two became fast friends.

“She reflects exactly what this country is about,” said Henrich, a grandmother of seven. “I want a Palin America.”

“This tour has been very high energy. Everywhere we go, we’ve averaged between 800 to 1,000 people a stop,” said Tina Andreadis, a vice president and director of publicity at Harper Collins.

Only 1,000 wristbands were available for those wishing to see Palin. Liv Miller of Brentwood camped out in the rainy, cold parking lot for 42 hours to be the first person to meet Palin, who is also the star of TLC’s reality show Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

Admired for values

After seeing information about the Brentwood event posted on Palin’s Facebook page, Ronna Mason and her family traveled from their home in Dothan, Ala., to see the political figure.

“I think it’s her family values that I admire so much. She’s just an amazing person,” she said.

Before the general event, Palin met with parents of children with special needs and a group of veterans who meet in the Costco’s café area every Friday morning.

“She told us that she appreciated the service we did for our country. And she is even prettier and more vivacious to what you see on the television,” said John Frame, who served in the U.S. Army from 1962 to 1988.

With only Costco members and their guests able to enter the store, the event was a boon for the local membership warehouse club.

“Since this was announced about two weeks ago, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in new membership applications. It’s been a tremendous benefit to our members,” said Janet Kilgore, who handles marketing for the local Costco.

People camped out and lined up before dawn in Nashville Wednesday to get a signed copy of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s new book.

Palin signed copies of “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag” at a Costco in Brentwood as part of her national book tour.

The veterans who have been meeting at the Brentwood Costco every week for the last 10 years were the first to get her signature.

“She recognizes the value of the military,” one commented.

WSMV Channel 4 TV reported:

People began lining up Tuesday night outside the Costco in Cool Springs all night for a chance to meet her.

“I just admire her so much, and you know I just thought I’m just going to do it,” said Brentwod resident Wendy Ivester, who was at the event. “She is very beautiful and personable and just sincere. I’m a conservative also, and I just agree with what she stands for.”

“I’m thankful that she stands for godly values. That means a lot to me,” said Columbia resident Celia Hampton, who was at the book signing.

The book signing ran from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
