The three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury announced that New York Times bestselling author Chelsea Clinton will attend the team’s matchup with the Washington Mystics on Tuesday, August 7 at Talking Stick Resort Arena at 7 p.m. Prior to tipoff, Clinton will participate in a book signing with fans where she will autograph copies of her No. 1 New York Times bestselling picture book “She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World (2017).” Tickets for the exclusive meet-and-greet are available here.

She Persisted celebrates thirteen American women who used their voices and determination to create change and shape history through science, the arts, sports, education and activism. Inspired by the overwhelming response from young readers to the stories of the thirteen American women shared in She Persisted, Clinton published She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History in March 2018. Clinton’s books are designed to inspire everyone who has ever aimed high and been told to step down, for everyone who has ever raised their voice and been told to quiet down and for everyone who has ever felt small, unimportant or unworthy.

WNBA all-time leading scorer Diana Taurasi and 2017 WNBA scoring champion Brittney Griner return to Phoenix this summer to lead the Mercury in a quest for the franchise’s WNBA-record tying fourth championship.  Tickets for the team’s matchup with the Washington Mystics on Tuesday, August 7 and the rest of the Mercury’s 2018 home games are available online at or by phone at 602-252-WNBA.
