Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced on Aug. 28 that she will be embarking on a 15-city tour to promote her new book, "What Happened." Tickets for the tour go for as much as $1,200.

According to promotional material from Politics and Prose Bookstore, Clinton will begin her tour on Sept. 18 by paying a visit to the Warner Theater in Washington D.C. There, she promises to "let loose" and tell her audience a "personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny story" about the election.

"For the first time, Hillary Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history," reads the promotional material.

"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net," Clinton said on her book tour's website. "Now I'm letting my guard down."

Clinton promises that "What Happened" will be her "most personal memoir yet."

The former presidential candidate will also be stopping by some of the states responsible for her loss. On Nov. 9, exactly one year after she gave her concession speech, she will be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Other states on the schedule include Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan, which were all won by Trump. She will also be visiting California, Illinois, New York, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington state.

In addition, Clinton will fly to various Canadian cities where she will charge as much as $1,200 a seat. However, during her U.S. tour, tickets will be much cheaper. Some tickets on a stop in Broward County, Florida, go for between $50 and $350.

Despite the Sept. 12 release, some of Clinton's stories in her new book are already capturing national attention.

In "What Happened," Clinton recalls the infamous moment during one of the presidential debates when Trump followed her closely while she walked around the stage, reports Daily Mail.

"It was incredibly uncomfortable he was literally breathing down my neck," Clinton said in a clip aired by "Morning Joe." "My skin crawled."

She continued on: "Well, what would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry-on as if he weren't repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly: 'Back up you creep, get away from me! I know you love to intimidate women, but you can't intimidate me, so back up!'"
