Former President George W. Bush is scheduled to appear at a Phoenix book store Thursday to sign copies of his book “Decision Points.”
People began lining up Wednesday for a chance to meet the 43rd president.
Before they can meet Bush, patrons will be put through Secret Service security checks at the Barnes and Noble store at Desert Ridge mall.
Phoenix police and Secret Service were in the store early Thursday preparing for Bush’s arrival.
Only people handed a wristband will get a chance to meet and greet Bush Thursday.
Barnes and Noble has not said how many wristbands were given out, but store managers tell KTVK-TV it’s similar to Sarah Palin’s recent book signing. There were 1,000 wristbands for that event.
