(Released February 16, 2011) – Emmy award-winning talk show host Dick Cavett is scheduled to appear in Toledo at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 3 in the Stranahan Theater, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd., as The Blade and the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library kick off the 2011 Spring Authors! Authors! Series.

In 1968 ABC signed Cavett as the host of a morning talk show, which eventually lead ABC to give Cavett his own late night program opposite The Tonight Show. The Dick Cavett Show ran on ABC until 1975. He has made guest appearances on such television programs as Cheers, The Edge of Night, and The Simpsons, as well as in the films Beetlejuice and Forrest Gump.

His latest book, published November 2010, is titled Talk Show: Confrontations, Pointed Commentary, and Off-Screen Secrets.
