TICKETED BOOK SIGNING: Chelsea Clinton, Start Now!

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 6:00pm

Thank you to everyone who attended the event! Pictures from the event can be seen here.

Bookshop Santa Cruz is thrilled to welcome #1 New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Clinton to the store for a signing of her newest book for young readers, Start Now! You Can Make a Difference.

Receive one signing line ticket, which admits up to four family members to the signing line, with the purchase of Start Now. This ticketed book signing (no talk) will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. 

This event is part of Bookshop's year-long Women's Voices campaign. 

Start Now! You Can Make a Difference is perfect for the youngest activists among us—a book geared just for them full of facts, stories, and tips on how to change the world.

What can I do to help save endangered animals? How can I eat healthy? Why do I need to cover my mouth when I cough? What do I do if I'm being bullied?

With information on problems both large and small, Chelsea Clinton breaks down the concepts of health, hunger, climate change, endangered species and bullying, so that readers can understand the world around them, and how they can make a difference in their own lives, as well as in their communities and the world at large. With comic drawings to illustrate Clinton's words, photographs of real live kids who are making a difference today, and lists of ways to get involved, this book is the perfect introduction to young activists who want to make the world a better place.


Chelsea Clinton is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling picture book She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, which was praised in a starred review by Publishers Weekly as a “lovely, moving work of children's literature [and a] polished introduction to a diverse and accomplished group of women." She is also the author of the New York Times bestselling She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History, It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! and, with Devi Sridhar, Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? Chelsea Clinton is the Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, where she works on many initiatives including those that help to empower the next generation of leaders. She lives in New York City with her husband, Marc, their daughter, Charlotte, their son, Aidan, and their dog, Soren. You can follow her on Twitter at @ChelseaClinton or on Facebook at
