On occasion we come across a true gem in the form of a book signed by the author. This month we are sharing Always A Reckoning by Jimmy Carter. He was our 39th president and had just less than a month left in his presidency when I was born. (Yes, December 28 is a big birthday for me for all you math lovers out there!) Always A Reckoning is a collection of poetry by former President Jimmy Carter. With illustrations by his granddaughter Sarah Elizabeth Chuldenko, President Carter shares memories about his childhood, his family and his political life. This book is featured here on our sister site The House of Books. You won’t regret owning this amazing find! Inside this book is a Christmas card signed by Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn making it a timely feature and a great gift idea for any history buff on your list.
