Barnes & Noble to Host Mr. and Mrs. Newt Gingrich

You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. I’m telling you why: Newt Gingrich is coming to town.

That’s right, the former Speaker of the House and failed presidential candidate will sign copies of his novel Victory at Yorktown at 7 p.m. Monday at the Barnes & Noble across from NorthPark Center. To add to the excitement, Gingrich’s wife, Calista, will sign copies of her children’s book, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride.

The folks at Barnes & Noble are expecting such a big turnout for this twin bill that they’ve issued the following instructions:

Please present a Barnes & Noble receipt for one of the Gingrichs’ books beginning at 9:00 am, November 19 to get your ticket to save a place in line. Purchase not necessary, but priority place in line will go to those with a Barnes & Noble receipt.

If you were considering patronizing Tom Thumb, Blue Mesa, or any of the other businesses in the Lincoln Park shopping center on Monday, consider yourself warned.

    Dan – your journalistic slip is showing…’failed presidential candidate’?
    Bias is better hidden with:
    former presidential candidate, but then again that would be technically inaccurate…he never got the Republican nomination as the party’s candidate – failed contender maybe? don’t let snark highlight your errors…
