Carter to resume book signings after hospital treatment
CLEVELAND – Former President Jimmy Carter was rushed to a hospital yesterday after developing an upset stomach during a flight to Cleveland but should continue his book-signing tour this week, the Carter Center said.
Carter, who turns 86 on Friday, has been active in international diplomacy since serving as president from 1977 to 1981, particularly in intervening on behalf of Americans detained abroad and as an observer of foreign elections.
“He is resting comfortably and is expected to resume his book tour this week,” a statement from the Atlanta-based Carter Center said.
Just last month, Carter went to North Korea to secure the release of an American convicted of illegally entering the reclusive country.
