If you bought tickets to the Dec. 5 signing

We have great news! President Carter signed copies of his beautiful new book, "The Paintings of Jimmy Carter," for everyone who bought tickets to his Dec. 5 signing, which was cancelled by the National Day of Mourning for former President George H.W. Bush.

We do not know if President Carter will be able to reschedule an appearance at the Carter Library in January or not. For now, if you would still like your signed copy of "The Paintings of Jimmy Carter," you should come by A Cappella Books in Inman Park to pick it up. We are open 11-7 Monday-Saturday and Noon-7, Sunday.

If you are unable to come by, please contact us by phone at 404-681-5128 to arrange for shipping (there is a $5 fee).

If you would prefer a refund, please contact Ticket Alternative at 678-701-6114 before December 19, 2018.

If you have not picked up your book, arranged to have it shipped, or requested a refund before December 19, 2018, we can hold your copy only through Saturday, January 12, 2019.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked through this unavoidable situation.

If you did not buy tickets to the Dec. 5 signing

If you missed your chance to pre-order the book, you may still purchase a signed edition using the link below, as President Carter signed an additional limited number of copies. These copies are available online and in-store only while supplies last.

About the Book

In the 1980s, former President Jimmy Carter took up painting in his free time. Using his home woodworking shop as a studio, Carter has since produced more than a hundred works, capturing the landscapes and people of his beloved Plains, Georgia, and the far-flung places to which he has traveled to advance the work of the Carter Center. This book showcases in one place, for the first time, more than fifty of his favorite paintings. The works are accompanied by his own written narrative.

About the Author

Jimmy Carter was born in Plains, Georgia, and served as thirty-ninth President of the United States. He and his wife, Rosalynn, founded the Carter Center, a nonprofit organization that prevents and resolves conflicts, enhances freedom and democracy, and improves health around the world. The impact of the Center's humanitarian work and his negotiation of the 1978 Camp David Accords earned him the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. When not traveling around the world to observe elections, mediate conflicts, and improve basic health care, he has spent his spare time writing numerous books and developing his skills as a painter, woodworker, fly fisherman, birdwatcher, and even winemaker. He and Rosalynn enjoy time with their four children, twelve grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.
