The Mark Twain House & Museum presents author and Twain House trustee David Baldacci, who will talk about his new thriller, Redemption. This Mark My Words event takes place on Thursday, May 16, at 7 p.m.

Redemption is the fifth work in the wildly popular Amos Decker detective series, which began in 2015 with Memory Man. Decker’s special power is total recall, a result of his brain’s rewiring itself after a blow to the head in a football game.

The new book circles back to Decker’s first case, in which he may have made a mistake as a rookie detective, leading to conviction of the wrong man. Redemption will be published April 16.

Tickets to the talk alone are $40 and include a copy of Redemption.

Tickets to the talk (including a copy of the book) PLUS a VIP reception in the museum’s Hal Holbrook Hall preceding the talk are $90.

Please join The Mark Twain House & Museum in participating in David Baldacci’s Feeding Body & Mind initiative. Launched by David and Michelle Baldacci’s Wish You Well Foundation® in partnership with Feeding America®, the Feeding Body & Mind initiative seeks to address the connection between literacy, poverty and hunger. Through this initiative, more than 1 million new and gently used books have been collected and distributed through food banks to families in need. 

How it works:
-When you arrive at the Mark My Words event, look for the big white Feeding Body & Mind donation box.
-Place your new or gently used book(s) in the box.
That’s all there is to it! When the Feeding Body & Mind donation box is full, the Wish You Well Foundation® ships it directly to your local community food bank, ensuring that your generous donation benefits families right here in the Hartford area. Together we can make a difference!
