Jimmy Carter at UW Bookstore TONIGHT

The folks at University Bookstore emphasize that former President Carter will not be speaking during his appearance today—merely signing his new book We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land: A Plan that Will Work (2009). But we’re betting he’ll at least say hello, right? And that’s cool enough reason to be there.

Based on the former president’s daily diary entries during his four-year stint at commander and chief, We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land will no doubt give history and politico nerds an intimate view of the day-to-day details of his presidency.

Fair warning. We received another note from the U Bookstore today, reminding us that signing tickets --available by purchasing White House Diary from University Book Store--will be required to even stand in line for a presidential autograph.

Wednesday, 10/27. 7 p.m. Free signing ticket required—ticket available upon purchase of the book from University Book Store. University Book Store, 4326 University Way NE; 206.634.3400.
