AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter will speak
about his years as president and offer observations about current
events during a presentation at the LBJ Library in Austin.


Carter was deeply involved in the Middle East peace process
while president between 1977 and 1981.

He was close to Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who was succeeded by Hosni Mubarak.


The LBJ Library's director, Mark Updegrove, will lead the
conversation with Carter in front of a live audience, which will
also ask questions.

Carter will discuss his latest book, "A White House Diary." Free tickets to the event were handed out last
month.


Carter was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work in
Africa.

I don't care what critics say about Carter, he continues to be involved in world affairs and human rights. He has done more as a former president then any of the other ones. He was right about alternative energy sources while in the White House, and brokered a peace between Egypt and Isreal.
