Former vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin goes on tour next week to promote for new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.
According to The Christian Science-Monitor, Palin's tour will begin Nov. 12, at a Barnes and Noble store in Bethlehem, Pa. and will end three-and-a-half weeks later on Dec. 7 at the same retailer in Roanoke, Va.
As she did for previous book tours, Palin will be skipping over major market stops in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. She is favoring smaller venues in places such as military posts in Fort Campbell, Ky. and Fort Benning, Ga., as well as a Costco store in Plano, Texas and a Walmart in Wausau, Wis. Other pre-Thanksgiving tour stops will include stops in Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Minnesota.
Good Tidings tackle Palin's beliefs about how the true meaning of the Christmas season has fallen away to vast commercialization, and calls for a return to the true meaning of the holiday.
Harper Collins, who published the book, described it by saying the following:
"In Good Tidings and Great Joy, she calls for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. She asserts the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas-in public displays, school concerts, pageants, and our expressions to one another-and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today's society."
Palin's previous two books, Going Rogue and America by Heart, became New York Times bestsellers.
