Prairie Lights cancels reading after threat

Last night, a scheduled "Live From Prairie Lights" reading in Iowa City was canceled because of security threats. The book was Abortion Under Attack: Women on the Challenges Facing Choice, and the reading was to have been done by Krista Jacobs. How much more "pro-life" can you get than threatening the lives of innocent people? Good job, wingnuts.

I've never heard of a reading there being canceled, for any reason. This is depressing.

I heard this on the radio this morning and was very surprised. I'm curious about the backstory - the nature of the threats, who was behind them, etc. On the radio, they just said that the owner had received a call (or calls) from people upset about the reading, but it must have been much more serious than that.
