NORWOOD, Ohio (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter is scheduled to be in southwest Ohio on April 1 for a book-signing event.

Carter will be at the Joseph-Beth Booksellers in the Cincinnati suburb of Norwood. The book set for release later this month by publisher Simon & Schuster is titled: “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power.”

The 39th president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate has written books ranging from his memoirs to focusing on international issues. This book is about discrimination and human rights abuses against women and girls around the world.

The 89-year-old Georgia native will also discuss his book at the event.
