Former President Jimmy Carter will speak at Brandeis University today about his controversial new book about Israel.
About 1,700 students, faculty and other members of the university community are expected to attend the forum this afternoon where Carter will discuss his book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid."
The book has caused a stir because of its criticisms of Israel. A university spokesman says a protest area has been set up near the hall where Carter will speak.
