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).
