Hillary Clinton is coming to South Florida in October to promote her upcoming memoir What Happened, which looks at question we're still asking ourselves after the Democratic nominee lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.

The former Secretary of State will be stopping at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale on Oct. 3 as part of her book tour. Tickets are $50 to $375, and a VIP package includes premium seating, a photo opportunity with Clinton and a signed copy of her new book. Florida went red in 2016 when the Republican Trump won the state by 1.2 points last November.

"Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules," according to the book's summary. "In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterwards."

If that doesn't sound juicy enough for you, audio excerpts of Clinton's book have been released where she calls Trump a "creep" and says her "skin crawled" when he weirdly followed her around the stage during a debate in St. Louis. Clinton's book makes its debut on Sept. 12, but you can pre-order the memoir online now.
