The Authors! Authors! talk by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. for Oct. 20 has been canceled and may be rescheduled in the spring.
Gates, an African-American scholar and professor at Harvard University, has a health problem that temporarily prevents him from flying.
People who have purchased tickets may use them at other Authors! Authors! programs this year and for all programs in spring, 2012, but must exchange them at any branch location of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. To obtain a refund, they can return the ticket to any branch and leave their name and address with the manager.
Speakers for the spring lineup have yet to be announced.
Upcoming speakers in the fall will be Steve Pollick and Jeff Basting, a writer and artist respectively at The Blade, who have published a coffee-table sized 64-page book, Best of the Outdoors Page. They will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 3 in the Stranahan Theater.
And on Nov. 17, Lisa See, author of Shanghai Girls and Snowflower and the Secret Fan, takes the Stranahan’s stage at 7 p.m.
The series is sponsored by the library and The Blade
