Hillary Clinton spotted shopping in Rhode Island bookstore

WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) " Hillary Clinton is recovering from her election loss in part by shopping for books with her family in Rhode Island.

In a speech last week to the Children's Defense Fund, the former Democratic presidential nominee said there have been a few times since her Nov. 8 loss to Republican Donald Trump that all she wanted to do was "to curl up with a good book."

On Sunday, she was spotted at The Savoy Bookstore in Westerly with her husband, their daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren.


Bookseller Jessica Wick tells The Day newspaper that the family was low key and it seemed like they just needed reading material. She said Clinton was kind, gracious and graceful.

Rhode Island is friendly ground for Clinton. She carried the state by more than 15 points.
