Navigating The Hillary Clinton Event At UW On Wednesday
By Britt Thorson Published: Jun 16, 2014
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be signing copies of her new book Hard Choices
this Wednesday, June 18th, at the University Bookstore
. We anticipate hundreds of people showing up – here’s what you need to know to get in, get signed, and get out!
1. She is only signing copies of Hard Choices that have been bought that day, June 18th, from the University Bookstore (in person, no online orders). No other memorabilia will be allowed in for signing, and no one without a book gets through.
2. Copies of Hard Choices bought at the Bookstore will come with an event entry wristband, which is your ticket into the signing at 5 p.m. There are limited copies available, aka a limited amount of wristbands available. The Bookstore opens at 9 a.m. – get there early to ensure you can buy a copy ($38.33 with tax) and get yourself a wristband.
3. No matter how much your Mom wants you to pick up a copy and get it signed for her, you can’t! One book per person, one signature per book. In fact, you can’t bring anything else in with you – all bags will be checked.
4. Parking is going to be even more awful than usual, so we highly suggest either getting dropped off or taking a bus. If you’re going to park in their lot, there’s a flat fee of $25 for three hours or more. They’re provided a map of all possible parking locations.

WITH ADOPTION FEE’S WAIVED FOR ADULT CATS EVERY THURSDAY IN JUNE, IT’S A PURR-FECT TIME TO FIND THAT NEW FELINE FAMILY MEMBER.
PAWS* (The Progressive Animal Welfare Society) joins the American Humane Association to inspire Washingtonians to consider cats as an ideal companion.
PAWS has announced that they are offering a unique special on cat adoptions in June; Adoption fees will be WAIVED for every cat over the age of three every Thursday in June.
We adopted a cat at Cat City back in December and it has been such a fun journey watching her settle into our family. Cats have such unique qualities to offer us as well as they keep themselves engaged working themselves up about squirrels, crows, and unfortunate bugs that end up buzzing around the window sills. Furthermore, cats are great insurance against any rodent problems in your basement! Stop into to Cat City and you won’t be able to help but fall head-over-heels in love with a bundle of cuddly cuteness!
“Our adult cats offer so much love and companionship to cat lovers looking to either start their fur-families or expand them.” said Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animal Services at PAWS. “Cats are the most popular pet in Seattle, which is why we opened Cat City in Seattle to complement our companion animal operations in Lynnwood.” Joubert said this special adoption program in June would help adult cats find their “forever homes.”
The University District has it’s own adoption location at Cat City (5200 Roosevelt Way NE). There is also The Companion Animal Service shelter in Lynnwood at 15305 44th Avenue West. Hours and more information can be found online at www.paws.org.
*PAWS is a champion for animals–rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife, sheltering and adopting homeless cats and dogs, and educating people to make a better world for animals and people.
