DES MOINES, Iowa - Former Gov. Sarah Palin has scheduled her first stop in Iowa since the last election, promoting her memoir at a bookstore in Sioux City next month.
Palin will appear at the Barnes & Noble store Dec. 6 as part of a nationwide tour that begins Nov. 18 in Grand Rapids, Mich. Palin is promoting her memoir "Going Rogue."
A spokeswoman for Iowa Republican Party Chairman Matt Strawn said top Republicans weren't aware of any political appearance Palin had arranged to coincide with her visit.
Palin was Sen. John McCain's running mate in the last presidential election, and she has a devoted following among the Republican party's social and religious conservative wing. That faction of the party dominates in the western part of the state.
