Mark My Words: Amy Siskind

Amy Siskind, author of THE LIST: A WEEK-BY-WEEK RECKONING of TRUMP’S FIRST YEAR, began keeping track of events she calls “not normal” shortly after Donald Trump was elected president. What began as social media posts for close friends soon turned into a viral sensation. It began with six items and ballooned to more than 100 per week and it has turned into a full-time occupation.

Siskind is president and co-founder of The New Agenda, a national organization working on issues such as economic independence and advancement, gender representation and bias, sexual assault, and domestic violence.

Mark Twain is one of our nation's defining cultural figures.

The Mark Twain House & Museum has restored the author’s Hartford, Connecticut, home, where the author and his family lived from 1874 to 1891. Twain wrote his most important works during the years he lived there, including Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. In addition to providing tours of Twain’s restored home, a National Historic Landmark, the institution offers activities and educational programs that illuminate Twain’s literary legacy and provide information about his life and times.
