Historian and author Jeff Barnes has cancelled an appearance Thursday at the North Platte Public Library due to illness in the family.

Barnes was going to talk about Nebraska’s Landmark Buildings at noon Thursday, sponsored by Humanities Nebraska.

The presentation will be rescheduled at a later date, library spokeswoman Terri Johnson said.

The 45-minute talk presents the diversity of the state’s buildings, from an 1830s-era cabin along to theinternationally noted state capitol, through a state-of-the-art cancer center of today.
