Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and wife Callista to visit William and Mary Bookstore

WILLIAMSBURG — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista are scheduled to be in Williamsburg Saturday to promote their new books.

The former House Speaker and presidential candidate will sign copies of his new political novel, “Duplicity”, while his wife will sign copies of her book “Christmas in America”.

Gingrich led the Republican sweep of the House in 1994, as part of the “Contract With America” and famously sparred and collaborated at times with then President Bill Clinton. He left the House in 1999 and unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for President in 2012.

The signing will take place at the College of William and Mary Bookstore, located at 345 Duke of Glouster Street. The event begins at 2 p.m.
