Boise Reading Cancelled; Didion “Hospitalised”

Joan Didion will not be coming to Boise for The Cabin’s visiting author series, according to the Idaho Statesman yesterday.

“Ms. Didion was hospitalized briefly this week and has been advised not to travel for the May 14 event,” said director Paul Shaffer.

The event had been due to take place months ago, but was delayed after the death of Natasha Richardson, which we reported here. 

Edward Albee will serve as a last-minute replacement:

…ticket-holders will get to see playwright Edward Albee in her place. The three-time Pulitzer winner and recipient of a special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in Theatre is best known for writing “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.”

The New Yorker has called him “the greatest living playwright.” “We are very grateful Mr. Albee was available to visit on such short notice, and we look forward to a splendid evening with a writing legend,” Shaffer added. All tickets for Didion will be accepted at the door.
