Just two days before Toledo native Jamie Farr performs in Toledo, another of his M*A*S*H co-stars will visit Toledo.

Emmy-award winning actor Alan Alda comes to Toledo as part of the “Authors! Authors!” series.

Alda will discuss his new book “If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look On My Face?” October 5th. The book details his mission to understand how to relate and communicate better. It is described as a “warm, witty and informative chronicle of how Alda found inspiration in everything from cutting-edge science to classic acting methods.”

Alda has a long and varied career in film and television but is best known for playing the role of Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H along with Farr who played Max Klinger.

Tickets for the appearance at the Stranahan Theater are $20. The Authors! Authors! is a series of public appearances by prominent authors sponsored by the Toledo Lucas County Public Library.

Alda’s appearance comes just two days prior to Jamie Farr’s performance in “Tuesdays with Morrie” also at the Stranahan Theater. M*A*S*H was one of television’s longest-running and most successful series about a medical unit during the Korean War.
