Clinton Takes Book Tour to Fayetteville Today

JULY 31, 2004 - Posted at 9:00 a.m. CDT

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Former President Clinton plans to be in Fayetteville today for a book signing at the North Wal-Mart.  The afternoon event will cap a three-day round of book signings in Arkansas that began Thursday afternoon in Blytheville, for Clinton's recently released autobiography "My Life."

Thursday, Clinton was at That Bookstore in Blytheville, and yesterday was in Little Rock.  Each time, 1,000 people are allowed into the stores to get his autograph.

The native Arkansan has been given exuberant reception, with people coming from out of state and some waiting extra long hours to see him.  Crowds in Blytheville on Thursday were so large that a section of the city's Main Street had to be temporarily closed to traffic.

Several people have said they wish Clinton would run again for president.

Clinton said being back in Arkansas was special for him.
