(CNN) - Sarah Palin's heading to Iowa.
The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee's upcoming book tour will taker her to Sioux City, Iowa, on Sunday December 6, according to an announcement posted on the Barnes and Noble Web site.
Palin will kick off the tour in Grand Rapids, Michigan on November 18, one day after her book, "Going Rogue: An American Life," is released.
Iowa's caucuses traditionally kick off the presidential primary season and any appearance in the Hawkeye State by a Republican who may be considering a run for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination sparks speculation.
Sioux City is in the heart of the conservative northwest part of Iowa.
Palin isn't the only possible Republican White House hopeful making an appearance in Iowa. Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate, visited three bookstores in eastern and central Iowa on Sunday to sign copies of his new holiday themed book. And Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty was in the state Saturday to give the keynote address at a major Iowa Republican party dinner.

I notice that she is starting her book tour in Sioux City where the Republicans will think that they have died and go to heaven. They will fall over her. Why doesn't she go to a Democratic strong hold and see what people really think of her?
Palin Palin Palin Who cares?
First let me say that NO Liberal I know is afraid of Palin, she is a media creation.
Secondly, she is welcome to go to Iowa and start her 2012 campaign. It will be very interesting to see what the GOP does with her. There are plenty of men running that will eat her alive. IF she thought the media was tough......... wait until the GOP primaries begin! Its dog-eat-dog!
We'll soon see the "real" Palin, and what she's made of.
Mitt "Baseball Glove" Romney truly is Guy Smiley. Run that, CNN. I dare you!
I hope Sara is the Repug nominee.
A book of what? How to ruin elections by being an airhead?
Why does ANYBODY care about this woman? She lost one election for the Republicans, why would anybody follow her? She already gave up on her state. The press only wants to use Palin as a puppet so she will run for President and keep the Democrats in office. WAKE UP!!!
When are we going to stop talking about this ignorant creature?
Why don't you take the road show to the real people in America – Watts, Englewood, Harlem, etc. I'm sure they'd receive you "warmly"; after all you mean to rule them, too, don't you?!
Appearing in GOP strongholds shows nothing.
Here you go again! This moron would go away if you would stop giving her press!!She has nothing to say!!!
Why is she still in the news????
"Going Rouge" is a brilliant name for a book about a pit bull in lipstick IMHO. Or was it a pig in lipstick? Anyway, who cares?
Please... please...please.... let Palin be the next GOP nominee. I would love to see Obama and Palin in a debate. Harvard Grad vs. Sports announcer...
Good luck in Iowa, Sarah. I really hope you do get the nomination for 2012 because I enjoy laughing. And, you, if you are anything beside incompetent, are hilarious to behold. So, good luck, godspeed, and help Tina Fey buy another house.
Considering what our little community leader is doing rather not doing in the White House, Sara Palin certainly can't do any worst. At least she does have some leadership skills which is sorely lacking with Obama.
once she has $5-10 million in her bank-account, she will disapear.
Thats all she and her clan cares for.
YES!!!! I can't wait to receive your book!!!!
Palin 2012 – (if we still have our country by then)
She seriously is a contender for America's biggest joke. What is even more disturbing is that she has a following. The anti fact anti intelligence anti reality folks. so sad for our country. and we are supposed to be the leaders in the world. No wonder we are so far behind. I truly am sadden by this.
Saint Sarah of the Silly will officially host the Thanksgiving feast where the neocons will slice and dice the moderates into individual tasty bites.
I couldn't be happier with this dream team!
CNN continues its obsession with Palin. How about some substance sometime soon CNN?
Please for the love of god!! STOP COVERING THIS PERSON!! It is like some mythical beast that thrives off of attention. The sooner we ignore it, the sooner it will go away.
CNN just loves this girl!
This "ticker" should be renamed "Palin Watch" in honor of CNN's obvious obsession with reporting every idiotic move or statement made by this moron.
Yeah, Sarah Palin is going to visit a bunch of important American cities on her way to Washington! I hope she stops by San Diego so we can cheer her on.
