Hillary Clinton to sign copies of her new book at sold-out event in Pasadena

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) -- Former secretary of state and first lady Hillary Clinton is scheduled to appear at a sold-out book signing for her new memoir Friday afternoon at a bookstore in Pasadena.

Hours before the 2 p.m. event, hundreds of people were seen lined up outside Vromans Bookstore on Colorado Boulevard. They were eager for the onetime Democratic presidential nominee to sign their copy of "What Happened," her account of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Tickets to the event were sold out within 90 minutes last month, according to Vromans.

In the book, Clinton looks back at the campaign and her interactions with then-GOP nominee Donald Trump - including awkward moments that were watched by millions on the debate stage.

"What Happened" also addresses Russia's alleged interference in the election, as well as her regrets on the campaign trail, saying she should have stayed away from anything having to do with Wall Street. She was heavily criticized at the time for giving several speeches to bankers, for which she was paid six-figure speaking fees.

The memoir also discusses former FBI Director James Comey's role in the days leading to Election Day, and the Justice Department's investigation into Clinton's private email server.
