Carter Memoir to S&S

PW Daily reports that former President Jimmy Carter has just signed with Simon & Schuster‘s Alice Mayhew for a memoir. The untitled work is an account of Carter’s post-presidential career, and will describe his efforts, and those of the Carter Center, on behalf of some of the most neglected issues of the past 25 years-from the Middle East to North Korea, Sudan, Bosnia, Herzegovina, and China. Carter and the Center have monitored more than 65 elections and worked throughout Africa to eradicate disease. S&S has added the title to its fall schedule. Mayhew acquired North American rights to the new book from Lynn Nesbit at Janklow & Nesbit for an undisclosed figure.
