NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be in Central Indiana Thursday signing copies of her new book, “Going Rogue.”
Palin’s first stop is in Fort Wayne. Her second stop will
be at the Borders in the Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville. At
7:30 a.m. about 1,000 Palin supporters were already in line.
The doors to Borders opened at 9 a.m. Groups of 25 were let in at a time.
Donaa Patterson from Noblesville explained, "I got here at 9 to make sure my mom got a wristband."
The wristband is good for two people or two books to be signed by the former vice-presidential candidate. The books had to be bought at Borders.
Palin launched her book tour Wednesday in Michigan. Her book is already a best seller for Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
"I would say to all the critics try raising five kids and then tell me she has no experience," defended Lucy Roark, Greenwood.
Silver tape directed the way in and out of the bookstore.
At 10:55 a.m., an organizer told the crowd its going to be close. When 24-Hour News 8 checked inside at 11:10 a.m., there were 200 remaining.
The last wristband was handed out just after 12:15 p.m.
People with wristbands have to return at 5 p.m. They will be grouped according to the letter on their band.
The book signing is expected to start at 6 p.m.
Organizers said when Palin arrives she may address the crowd waiting outside.
