A presentation by Bob Goff scheduled to take place at Hope College on Monday, Dec. 5, has been cancelled due to the speaker’s illness.

The event’s campus organizers, who have been arranging his visit through a course at the college, report that he is in the hospital with a severe case of malaria and unavailable for the foreseeable future.  They plan to reschedule the event for sometime during the spring semester and will announce the details when available.

Goff is the author of the 2012 book “Love Does,” a New York Times best-seller.
