Chelsea Clinton Will Visit a Haverford Bookstore on Monday
She’ll sign copies of her latest children’s book, She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History.
Chelsea Clinton will make an appearance in Haverford on Monday.
She’ll return to Children’s Book World — where she stopped in 2015 — to read her newest book, She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History.
The ticketed event kicks off at 6 p.m. at the independent bookshop, located at 17 Haverford Station Road. To purchase “tickets,” all you have to do is order Clinton’s latest book from the bookstore for $17.99. The book will act as your ticket and allow up to four family members to enter the signing line to meet Clinton. All purchased books will be available for pickup the evening of the signing, according to the bookstore’s website.
Clinton’s newest title is a companion to her previous book, She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, a New York Times number-one bestseller. Both books were illustrated by artist Alexandra Boiger.
While the first book celebrates notable American women (like abolitionist Harriet Tubman; author and activist Helen Keller; Civil Rights movement pioneer Claudette Colvin; and Sonia Sotomayor, the first U.S. Supreme Court justice of Hispanic descent), the second focuses more on international women. It includes French-Polish physicist Marie Curie; Mexican self-taught scholar Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz; Liberian peace activist Viola Desmond; Egypt’s first female ambassador, Aisha Rateb; J.K. Rowling; Chinese ballet dancer Yuan Yuan Tan; and young Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai.

Clinton has made several appearances in Haverford – and not just for book readings. She visited the Delaware County suburb for a town hall meeting in 2016 with her mother, Hillary Clinton, during the elder Clinton’s presidential campaign.
