Gov. Palin will be in Pensacola and The Villages on Monday to sign books

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 17, 2013

In an interesting twist, Governor Palin and Oliver North were inadvertently scheduled to sign their new books at approximately the same time.  Rob Johnson at pnj.com reports:

Palin, North split by the book(stores)

Conservatives scheduled to sign new books separately in Pensacola at the same time

Sarah Palin and Oliver North are political allies, but on Monday they may split the Pensacola book-buying community.

POLL: Which book signing will you attend? Take our poll.

Palin and North have much in common as conservative Republicans, Fox News contributors and unsuccessful candidates for national elective office. Now they’re about to share the unlikely coincidence of promoting their new books in separate Pensacola stores at the same time.

“Talk about a conflict of stars,” said Beege Welborn, secretary of the Republican Party in Escambia County. “Pensacola is going to be divided. You have your ‘Palinistas,’ who still have her name on their bumper stickers. And you have the military connection, where there’s a lot of admiration for North as a Marine Corps combat veteran.”

A quirk in the authors’ book-signing tour schedules will bring them within a mile of each other, Palin at Books-A-Million and North at Barnes & Noble.

The overlapping appearances may force some fans of both celebrities to make a hard choice.

“I’ll go to one of them. I had planned on going to Oliver North before I heard about Sarah Palin,” said Susan Moore, the Republican Party’s state committeewoman in Escambia County.

Neither the authors’ publishers nor the local book stores learned of their similar schedules until late last week, too late to change either schedule.

“I was flabbergasted,” said Susan Haas, general manager of Books-A-Million. “We’ll probably have some wives going to Palin and husbands going to North.”

Palin’s writing credentials include the popular “Going Rogue,” a memoir of her surprise choice in a bid for the vice presidency as John McCain’s running mate in 2008. Her new book is Christmas-themed and inspirational: “Good Tidings and Great Joy.”

North’s book is the latest installment on his “American Heroes” series, which focuses on the values of those who serve in the military and their families.

Plans are underway that might allow time for fans of both visitors to attend each event.

Governor Palin and Newt Gingrich will be coming to The Villages a couple of weeks apart – she on November 18 and he on December 1.  Marv Balousek at Villages-News.com reports:

Sarah Palin coming to The Villages Nov. 18

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.
