The Evening with the Author scheduled for tonight and sponsored by the Friends of the Mount Airy Public Library has been canceled.
Sharyn McCrumb, the author scheduled to appear, canceled the appearance because of health concerns.
Due to illness, she will not be able to join us, said Librarian Pat Gwyn. If we get to reschedule her or have a similar program, we will contact the people who showed interest.
The program was to be made possible by a grant through the Surry Arts Council and must be used by the end of this month. The library now plans to use the funds for some of the childrens programming this month in order to use it by the deadline. However, organizers plan to do something similar in the future to make up for missing the author dinner.
