Palin spends Thanksgiving with family in Richland

RICHLAND, Wash.(AP) - Sarah Palin is spending Thanksgiving with relatives in Washington state before resuming book signing over the weekend.     

The former Republican vice-presidential candidate is visiting Richland to spend the holiday with relatives.     

The Tri-City Herald reports Palin arrived late Wednesday from Orlando, Fla. Palin plans to have dinner at the Richland home of her aunt Katie Johnson, a sister of Palin's mother.     

She says it's good to be back in the Tri-Cities to reconnect with "the roots."

Palin laced up her sneakers this Thanksgiving to help raise money for the Red Cross.  She took park the annual 5-K Turkey Trot in Kennewick.  

Before the event, Palin was swarmed with excited racers who wanted to meet the former Alaskan Governor and Vice Presidential candidate.  

So what's on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner?  Palin says they're going unconventional with Quizno's.

She resumes her book tour Sunday, signing copies of "Going Rogue" at a book store in Richland.

Palin is scheduled for an appearance at the Fred Meyer store in Coeur d'Alene on Dec. 10. She will sign copies of her book from noon to 3 p.m.    

Palin's grandparents, Clem and Helen Sheeran, came to Richland in 1943.
