Hillary Clinton, former U.S. secretary of state, speaks in San Francisco.

The date has an unlucky ring to it, but the venue is big.

Hillary Clinton plans to promote her new book, “Hard Choices,” in Washington, D.C. as  part of a national book tour that fans hope is a prologue to presidential run — on Friday, June 13.

The former first lady will be interviewed by Lissa Muscatine — co-owner of the D.C. bookstore Politics and Prose, according to an email the bookstore just blasted out to members. Clinton is expected to speak for about an hour — including taking some questions from the audience.

Bits and pieces of her book have already leaked to the press — though the official unveiling is supposed to occur June 10. It’s one of a number of high-profile summer reading tomes, a list that includes former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s “Stress Test” and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s “A Fighting Chance.”

Tickets to the Clinton event cost $55 and include a pre-signed copy of book. The conversation with Clinton is part of the Newsmaker Series sponsored by the book store and George Washington University.

It’ll be held at the university’s Lisner Auditorium.
