Mini-Project: Come Up with a Great Question for President Carter (UPDATED)

Help us come up with some great questions for President Carter. They can be about his new book, running America, whatever!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, President Carter has had an unforeseen health problem and has had to postpone this interview. So we won't be able to ask him anything after all (or at least not now). We wish him a speedy recovery.

For this week's mini-Project we've got something pretty special. Our friends at Big Think are interviewing President Jimmy Carter about his new book, White House Diary, and they have invited us to help by sending a question along from our readers.


White House Diary is an edited version of the personal diary Carter wrote and dictated during his time as president. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day demands of the presidency and some of the particular issues he faced, including the Camp David Accords, the 1979 hostage situation in Iran, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

If you have a question about any of those events, or what it's like to be president, or an ex-president, or a Nobel laureate. Or what lessons from his own time Carter might pass to Obama, let us know.

How to Participate:

1. Read up on President Carter and his new book.

2. Come up with a great question to ask him.

3. Send it to us by 3 p.m. PST, Tuesday, September 28. You can email it to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com or send it via Twitter (if it's short enough).

We'll select a question and post a video of Carter's response as soon as we can.
