Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

If you're looking for copies of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue: An American Life, you'll be out of luck tonight at Legacy Books in Plano -- they're all sold out after the author's signing session for hundreds of supporters this afternoon. Our photographer Danny Fulgencio compared the scene to a line-up for a Six Flags ride, with the line to meet the would-be VP candidate snaking through the store and back outside. "It was like organized chaos," Danny says, noting that the scene didn't draw any counter-protesters, only fans who no doubt dream of the day she's president of the "real" America.

?>Tickets for Palin's signing line sold out days ago, though Palin's mom, dad and husband Todd were on hand downstairs to greet fans and sign books for anyone shut out of the main event. As book buyers descended the stairs with three or four signed books in their arms, Legacy ran out of the hardcover just ahead of Palin's 2 p.m. departure.

You'll find more shots from the store in this slide show.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
