Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) will travel to traditional stomping grounds for presidential campaigns during her book tour.

Palin will make an appearance at a Sioux City, Iowa location of Barnes & Noble during part of her book tour, the bookstore announced Monday.

Palin will make stops at seven Barnes & Noble locations across the U.S., but none more prominent than her appearance in Iowa, the state where the first presidential nominating contest is traditionally held.

Palin will be in Sioux City at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 6th.

The former vice presidential nominee had previously been planning to appear at the Iowa Family Policy Center's banquet, but pulled out after the group balked at paying a $100,000 speaker's fee.

Palin's book, "Going Rogue: An American Life" is scheduled for release this month, and the Barnes & Noble tour will include stops in Michigan, Florida, Minnesota, Virginia, and South Dakota. 

Update, Nov. 10, 11:42 a.m.: Palin spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton emails to clarify that Palin had not requested a speaking fee. Rather, Stapleton says, the group tried to raise money to entice Palin to attend the event, which the former governor could not attend due to a scheduling conflict.
