VIRTUAL: An Evening
VIRTUAL: An Evening with Jonathan Alter, Author of His Very Best: Jimmy Carter, A Life
Hudson Library & Historical Society

Tuesday, Feb. 2, 7 p.m.
or call (330) 653-6658.
Carter is the only American president who essentially lived in three centuries: his early life on the farm in the 1920s without electricity or running water might as well have been in the nineteenth; his presidency put him at the center of major events in the twentieth; and his efforts on conflict resolution and global health set him on the cutting edge of the challenges of the twenty-first. Drawing on fresh archival material and five years of extensive access to Carter and his entire family, Alter offers an engrossing, monumental biography that will change our understanding of perhaps the most misunderstood president in American history.

Alter is an award-winning historian, columnist and documentary filmmaker. An MSNBC political analyst and former senior editor at Newsweek, he is the author of three New York Times bestsellers: The Center Holds: Obama and His Enemies; The Promise: President Obama, Year One; and The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope. 

Copies of His Very Best will be available for purchase courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Registration for this program is required and a valid email address is required at time of registration. Participants will receive an email invitation to attend the program, hosted on Zoom, a day before the program begins. 

If you have any questions, please email askus@hudson.lib.oh.us or call (330) 653-6658 x1010.
