While President-elect Donald Trump is busy making semi-apologetic statements about the terrifying resurgence of white nationalism, Hillary Clinton has been spotted out in public yet again ― this time, at an independent bookstore in Rhode Island. 

Jessica Wick, an employee of the Savoy Bookshop in Westerly, posted a photo on Facebook yesterday about meeting the former presidential candidate, who was shopping for books with her family on Sunday. 

“I told her I voted for her, that she meant and means a lot. I thanked her, apologizing if I was being inappropriate or intrusive,” she wrote. “She was gracious and she was warm and she said the bookstore was beautiful.”

Clinton has made a few public appearances since Donald Trump won the election ― one young mother coincidentally ran into her on a walk in the woods in upstate New York, before Clinton made her first public speech for the Children’s Defense Fund a few days later, urging Americans to “never give up.”

CORRECTION: This article previously stated that the Savoy Bookshop was located in Waverly, Rhode Island. It is located in Westerly, and the article has been updated to reflect this.
