To all Kirk Douglas ticket holders,

We are very sorry to inform you that due to health issues, Mr. Kirk Douglas will not be able to make his scheduled appearance this evening at 6:00. However, Mr. Douglas is determined to reschedule once his health and his schedule can be coordinated. We expect this to happen in December or January.

As witnessed by Jackie Gmach, San Diego Jewish Book Fair Director, Mr. Douglas was at Costco yesterday for a book signing when flu-like symptoms caused him excessive fatigue and loss of voice. His publicist, Annabelle Stevens spoke with Jackie and relayed Mr. Douglas’ regret and reinforced his commitment to our book fair and that he will reschedule as soon as possible.

For those interested in gifts for the holidays, Mr. Douglas' book will be available tonight with signed book plates.

We want to reiterate, this is not a cancelled event, but rather a postponed one. For any questions, please call our box office at 858-362-1348.
