Parnassus Books is thrilled to present a book signing event with author Chelsea Clinton, who will sign her new picture book, She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History, the companion to the #1 New York Times bestseller, She Persisted. Read on for more information about the event, the book, and the author!
This event will be a book signing and will not include a presentation by the author. A ticket is required to join the signing line. Tickets can be obtained by purchasing a copy of She Persisted Around the World from Parnassus Books, either in the store, over the phone, or online. Each ticket admits up to four people. Space in the signing line will be limited; if you are considering attending the event, we strongly encourage you to purchase your book now, as walk-up tickets may not be able to be accommodated.
Admission to the signing line is based on the date of book purchase; the earlier your book is purchased, the earlier your spot in line. Your signing line ticket will have a large capital letter on it, beginning with A. This letter is your signing line group. You will be admitted to the line in group order (like the boarding process for Southwest).
Parnassus Books will close at 4:30pm to set up for the event and will re-open for ticket-holders only at 5pm.
Books will not be able to be personalized. Memorabilia or books by other authors will not be able to be signed. Posed photos will not be able to be accommodated, however, you will be able to take candid photos from the signing line.
Video recording, audio recording, and/or live-streaming during author appearances and signings is not possible without prior written permission from the publisher and Parnassus Books.
Can't make it to the event, but still want to purchase an autographed book? Place your order below, enter "signed copy" in the comments section of your order, and we'll have the author sign your book(s) and ship them to you after the event!
More about She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History
Women around the world have long dreamed big, even when they've been told their dreams didn't matter. They've spoken out, risen up and fought for what's right, even when they've been told to be quiet. Whether in science, the arts, sports or activism, women and girls throughout history have been determined to break barriers and change the status quo. They haven't let anyone get in their way and have helped us better understand our world and what's possible. In this companion book to She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, Chelsea Clinton introduces readers to a group of thirteen incredible women who have shaped history all across the globe.
She Persisted Around the World is a book for everyone who has ever aimed high and been told to step down, for everyone who has ever raised their voice and been told to quiet down, and for everyone who has ever felt small, unimportant or unworthy. Alexandra Boiger's vibrant artwork accompanies this inspiring text that shows readers of all ages that, no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the power to persist and succeed. It's the perfect book for tiny activists, mini feminists, and little kids who are ready to take on the world.
