Former President Jimmy Carter will visit Chicago Thursday evening to take part in a book signing.

The Democrat will be at the Swedish American Museum in Andersonville beginning at 6 p.m signing copies of his book,"A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power." The book deals with the discrimination and violence women face around the world.

On the tour promoting his latest work, Carter has been discussing hot topics including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Carter said he would consider pardoning Snowden if he was ever convicted.

In an interview that aired last Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press, Carter said he only uses "snail mail" when communicating with other world leaders because he believes the government is spying on him. The NSA denied the allegation.

Despite his fears of electronic communication, he reportedly sent his first text message on Wednesday night. It was a message to his grandson, Jason, a Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia.

Carter served as president from 1977 to 1981. He received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.
