President Carter cancels tonight's talk
Due to his hospitalization, President Carter has cancelled Wednesday's appearances in Washington.
The former president was scheduled to discuss his time at the White House and his most recent book, "White House Diary" Wednesday night in a program sponsored by the Smithsonian Associates.
The ticketed event at Lisner Auditorium was announced months ago and was sold out. He also cancelled a daytime appearance at Politics & Prose bookstore.
Christine Cimino, a spokesperson for Smithsonian Associates, said the group had been notified early Wednesday of President Carter's change of plans. "We are looking into re-scheduling," said Cimino. She said everyone would get a full refund if the event is not rescheduled, or they could not attend.
President Carter, who turns 86 on Friday, was hospitalized in Cleveland on Tuesday after complaining of stomach pains on a flight from Atlanta.
