Clemens Conversations: Mark Twain in the Margins
- This event has passed.
May 24 • 12:00 pm$6.50
Mark Twain had a lifelong habit of writing in the margins of the books he read – and it did not always matter whether the book actually belonged to him. He commented acerbically on the authors and their work – “by an ass” was a favorite phrase – and made other, longer comments that tell us about the man and his thoughts. His marginalia are his “conversations” with the books he was reading, and there are many examples of this in the library collection of The Mark Twain House & Museum.
Wednesday, May 24 at 12:00 PM ET. Tickets are $6.50, but free tickets are reserved for museum members. REGISTER HERE!
