Fresh off his lively TV interview with CBS’s Stephen Colbert around the release of his new book, Jimmy Carter will hold a book signing at his namesake presidential museum in Atlanta.
Carter, 93, will sign copies of “Faith: A Journey for All” at 5:30 p.m. on April 11 in the lobby of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum. The signing line will form at 3 p.m. outside the museum, which is located at 441 Freedom Parkway.
To take part, you must purchase a copy of “Faith: A Journey for All” from the Jimmy Carter Museum store. At the time of purchase, you will be given a wristband that will allow you to get in the signing line. In fact, it’s the only way to get in the line (Members of the Friends of the Jimmy Carter Library will get priority in the signing line, as well as a discount at the Museum store).
In addition to “Faith: A Journey for All,” wristband holders can have two previous books by President Carter signed. He will not personalize books, nor will he sign photos or any other memorabilia. Photos at the signing table are prohibited as well.
Carter says he’s cutting back on his schedule a bit, but he still works impressively fast to meet the big demand at his book signings. Here’s one good way to beat the crowd that’ll queue up to buy copies of Faith” and snag a wristband: You can get both in advance of the event at the museum store.
Museum hours: 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Mondays - Saturdays and from noon to 4:45 p.m. Additional information: 404-865-7100, www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov
