MONTCLAIR, NJ - Nearly 1,000 people flocked to Watchung Booksellers on Tuesday to catch a glimpse of former Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Several weeks ago, when her visit was announced, within one hour, Montclair’s Watchung Booksellers had sold 1,000 tickets to Hillary Clinton’s signing for her newly released book entitled What Happened.

While the New York City Barnes & Noble may have rivaled the exact number of people waiting at the book signing, many felt that it was quite a remarkable sight to see over a thousand people in line, snaking around the blocks at Watching Plaza chanting, “Hillary”.

The self-described vibrant, independent community bookstore is owned by Margot Sage-El. She told Tapinto Montclair that 895 of the tickets sold were scanned at the event, though more came through the store as many people brought their children along. Hundreds of additional spectators were outside of the store without a ticket.Sage-El described how she secured this engagement and how her small store housed such a big event. She said that twice a year publishers send a list of authors who are on tour, and the booksellers have an opportunity to pitch them. Her rep encouraged her to pitch. Sage-El assumed that someone of Clinton’s caliber would require an auditorium, but Watchung Booksellers was selected.
