EVENTS & EXHIBITS


  • EXHIBIT - NOW OPEN!!!: "Countdown to Zero: Defeating Disease"
    January 11, 2017 - October 9, 2017
    Only one human disease, smallpox, has ever been eradicated. But soon a second infection will join the list: Guinea worm disease, a painful and debilitating condition caused by the Guinea worm--known to many as the "fiery serpent". There is no medicine to cure Guinea worm disease and no vaccine to prevent it. Yet it can be stopped. This exhibition shows the heroic efforts throughout history to eradicate, eliminate, and control disease, including the Carter Center-led campaign to wipe out Guinea worm.

  • Patricia Bell-Scott - "THE FIREBRAND AND THE FIRST LADY "
    Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 7:00
    Reading/Book Signing. Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater. Free and Open to the Public. The Firebrand and the First Lady that tells the story of how a brilliant writer-turned-activist, granddaughter of a mulatto slave, and the first lady of the United States, whose ancestry gave her membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution, forged an enduring friendship that changed each of their lives and helped to alter the course of race and racism in America.

  • Roger Ekirch - "American Sanctuary"
    Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 7:00pm
    Lecture/Book Signing. Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater. Free & Open to the Public. "Roger Ekrich, professor of history at Virginia Tech, delves into the far-reaching ramifications of a violent 18th-century mutiny on the HMS Hermione, a British frigate. He persuasively argues that the fallout of the mutiny...was pivotal in the bitterly fought battle for the American presidency between incumbent John Adams and challenger Thomas Jefferson." --Publishers Weekly.

  • Marjorie Spruill - "Divided We Stand: The Battle Over Women's Rights and Family Values That Polarized American Politics"
    Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at 7:00pm
    Reading/Book Signing. Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater. Free and Open to the Public. "In this parable of how sensible and practical paths toward broader equality get overwhelmed by threat, fear, and bigotry, historian Spruill suggests that the current political landscape of paralyzing divisiveness, hateful rhetoric, and persistent obstructionism took form in 1977, when the two women's movements of the 1970's each side purporting to represent the majority or speak for "real" American women, came to a head at the National Women's Conference in Houston." - Publishers Weekly.

  • Ganesh Sitaraman - "THE CRISIS OF THE MIDDLE CLASS CONSTITUTION: Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic"
    Wednesday March 29, 2017 at 7:00pm
    Lecture/Book Signing. Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater. Free and Open to the Public. Ganesh Sitaraman,an associate professor of law at Vanderbilt Law School and a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, offers an original, provocative contribution to the debate over rising economic inequality. He argues that a strong and sizable middle class is in fact embedded in the very framework of our government and its founding document.
