I just received this from Books of Wonder, the store where Robin was to
appear this weekend.

>To our loyal customers:

It doesn't specify who's ill, but I suspect it's more likely to be Peter
(Robin's husband, who's 73) than Robin herself, and it's rather alarming
that it's serious enough to prevent her from making the trip.
