The 2008 Spring Authors! Authors! series presented by The Blade and arranged by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library offers the community an exciting lineup of authors.

All Authors! Authors! events are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and are held at the Stranahan Theater Great Hall, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd. The Authors! Authors! series is beginning its 14th year.

The Spring series is as follows:

Wednesday, April 16 – Marian Wright Edelman, Humanitarian and Activist: Edelman’s many books include The Measure of Our Success: A Letter to My Children and Yours. Wright is Founder and President of the Children’s Defense Fund.

Tuesday, May 6 – Kathy Reichs, Forensic Anthropologist: Reichs bases the books in her bestselling Temperance Brennan series on aspects of forensic anthropology that she has used personally in her work.

Tuesday, June 10 – Meg Cabot, Popular Bestselling Author: Cabot is the author of over forty books for adults and teens including the popular Princess Diaries series which were made into two hit movies by Disney.

At each program, authors will speak for about one hour, followed by a short question and answer session. Following the program, authors will be available to sign copies of their books. Barnes & Noble Booksellers will supply books, and in some cases audio books, for purchase at each program.

Authors! Authors! tickets are $10 per person. Tickets are available for purchase at all Toledo-Lucas County Public Library locations and are limited in quantity. Student discounts are available. For more details on tickets, please call 419.259.5266.
