Local media reports "hundreds" of fans camped outside Barnes & Noble's Union Square branch for a chance to meet the the 69-year-old former presidential hopeful and buy her campaign confessional. That's when they got a surprise: fresh, piping hot pizza from famed New York pizzeria Joe's Pizza, signed: "From the Secretary."
Thrilled fans posted pictures of the pizza on Twitter:

Ms Clinton kicked off a 15-city book tour with Tuesday's book-signing. Pre-orders for her 494-page memoir -- in which she rips US President Donald Trump as an incompetent, unworthy, sexist "liar" -- have already made it a top seller on Amazon.
Ms Clinton offers a personal account of her reckoning with the election: how she was expecting an easy victory but was "shell-shocked" on election night; how she refused antidepressants and psychoanalysis, but drank her fair share of "Chardonnay;" and how she sought refuge in her family, an alternative breathing technique and yoga.
