We wanted to spread the word about an exciting event happening in Chicago this week! Former President Jimmy Carter will be signing his new book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power at Chicago’s own Women & Children First Bookstore this Thursday, March 27th, at 6 p.m.
“In President Jimmy Carter’s travels around the world, he has noted many abuses against women and girls. In “A Call to Action,” he defends the rights of women around the world and in particular challenges the use of religion to deny them equality.
Tickets are required. A purchase of “A Call to Action” from Women & Children First comes with a free ticket to the book signing. The book publishes on March 25th; the price (including tax) is $30.60.
Each adult in the signing line must purchase a book. However, one child between the ages of 6 and 18 may accompany an adult ticketholder. (An infant in arms is also welcome.) Call 773-769-9299 or go to www.womenandchildrenfirst.com for
more information or to pre-order a book and secure your ticket. There is a FAQ document to click on below to help get you started.
Please note that this is a book signing only; you can greet President Carter, but he will not be giving a talk.”
