Jimmy Carter at Westwood Borders

President Jimmy Carter will be appearing at Borders bookstore in Westwood this evening to speak and sign his new book, “White House Diary.”

The event begins at 6, but you’ll need to get there a bit earlier than that. The bookstore will start handing out the required wristbands at 10 a.m. with a purchase of “White House Diary.”

Capacity is limited, and those wristbands aren’t going to last forever. Also, President Carter does not sign body parts, so don’t ask.

More details at the Borders website.

Wanna Interview President Carter?


Peter Marchese of Playback Producers is inviting journalists to interview President Jimmy Carter, most likely because he has a new book, BEYOND THE WHITE HOUSE: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope, coming out next week. We thought about making a contest out of this, and giving the winner the phone number, but cooler heads prevailed.

As a press release, it’s a work of art.


Tuesday, October 9, 3:15 -5 PM EST
Thursday, October 11, 3:15 – 4:45 PM EST

Since leaving the White House in 1981, Carter has achieved more in his post-presidential years than any other president in American history. He has received the Nobel Peace Prize, published more than twenty bestselling books, and spoken out boldly–and sometimes controversially–on many of the most important issues of our time. But the bulk of his work has been realized through The Carter Center which is devoted to achieving specific goals in the advancement of peace, health, and human rights around the globe. Along with dedicated experts from The Carter Center, he has led peace efforts on four continents, monitored more than sixty-five troubled elections, and cured or prevented terrible diseases that afflict tens of millions of the world’s most forgotten people. He chronicles all the excitement, challenge, unpredictability, adventure, and satisfaction of this work with The Carter Center in BEYOND THE WHITE HOUSE: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope.
