NEW YORK -- Sarah Palin will be stopping by for the start of her daughter's book tour.
The former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate will appear with Bristol Palin on Wednesday in Bloomington, Minn., at the Barnes & Noble in the Mall of America. HarperCollins Publishers announced Monday that the two will sign copies of their latest books.
Sarah Palin says in a statement that she is "so proud" of her daughter and " thrilled to be joining her to kick off her book tour."
Bristol Palin's memoir, "Not Afraid of Life," came out last week and Wednesday is her first public event. Sarah Palin's "America by Heart" was released last fall. HarperCollins imprints published both books.
