Sarah Palin shakes the hand of a woman as she signs copies of her book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas," at Walmart in Wausau, Wis., on Thursday.

RIB MOUNTAIN, Wis. (AP) - Hundreds turned out for Sarah Palin's Christmas book signing at a Walmart in the Wausau area.

The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate is promoting her new book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas."

Carrie Kolbeck of Wausau was among those waiting Thursday to meet Palin. Kolbeck says Palin "just believes in standing up for religious freedom" and calls her "a very brave woman."

It was Palin's fourth stop on her national book tour. To meet Palin, fans had to buy her book at Walmart for $16.09.

Daily Herald Media reports Walmart declined to release the number of people who lined up to meet Palin or the number of books sold.

Palin's other books are the best-sellers "Going Rogue" and "America by Heart."
