Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and former first lady, drew hundreds of fans to East Hampton Village on Saturday for a signing of her new memoir.

Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont who has also been the Democratic National Committee chairman, arrived to East Hampton early, greeting people outside of Starbucks, next door to BookHampton, before heading into the bookstore to see Clinton.

Rufus Wainwright, the musician and Shelter Island resident, was accompanied by spouse Jörn Weisbrodt when her got his book signed.

Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, a Sag Harbor resident who served as ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom in the Obama administration, also attended the signing.
