As you know, last week's "National Day of Mourning" precluded the book signing at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. Thank you for your continued patience while we work on arranging for President Carter to sign copies of his new book for those of you who purchased it in advance of last week's scheduled book signing. We should have a definite answer to all of the questions you have been asking by Wednesday, December 12.

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.
