FORT GREENE — Hillary Clinton headquartered her presidential campaign in Brooklyn — and next month she’s returning to the borough to promote her new memoir.

Clinton will visit Fort Greene’s Greenlight Bookstore on Sept. 27 to sign copies of her book, "What Happened," after making a stop at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square two weeks before.

Tickets for the Greenlight went on sale Monday for $32 and sold out as of Wednesday morning, according to the bookstore's co-owner Jessica Stockton Bagnulo. Those interested in attending can join a waitlist on the store's online ticket hub, she said.

The appearance is part of a multi-city book tour the former Secretary of State is doing to promote the book, which tells “the story of the unprecedented 2016 presidential campaign and its aftermath,” Greenlight's site said.

Stockton Bagnulo said she is busy coordinating logistic and security details with Clinton's publisher for the visit, which will be on "on a different scale" from any previous guest the bookstore has hosted. But she doesn't mind the fuss.

“Everyone from my 5-year-old daughter to all of our staff are just over the moon about the chance to meet her," she said.

Clinton also has appearances scheduled at the Union Square Barnes and Noble on Sept. 12, in Brookfield, Connecticut, on Sept. 16, Montclair, New Jersey, on Sept. 26 and in Rhinebeck, New York, on Dec. 7, according to her website.

The Greenlight visit will take place just blocks from Clinton’s last public appearance in Brooklyn. In June, she gave the commencement address to graduates of CUNY’S Medgar Evers College, urging students to "not lose heart."
