Carter to Pen Bio On Mother

AP’s Hillel Italie reports that former President Jimmy Carter, who already has a book coming out this fall about his post-White House years, is working on a memoir about his mother, Lillian, to be published next spring by Simon & Schuster. “Jimmy Carter has inspired millions. Its a great opportunity to meet the woman who inspired him,” David Rosenthal, executive vice president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, said Thursday in a statement. “Jimmy Carter’s mother emerges from this portrait as redoubtable, generous, and forward-looking. He ascribes to her the inspiration for his own lifes work of commitment and faith.”
