In honor of Mark Twain’s birthday November 30, 1835,  Nicholson Baker, the critically acclaimed, best-selling author of 10 novels and five nonfiction books, will talk about his writing career and his love of Mark Twain with Jennifer LaRue, Director of Writing Programs at The Mark Twain House & Museum.  Baker’s books include The Mezzanine, Vox, U & I, and, most recently, Substitute: Going to School with a Thousand Kids.  Baker, like Twain, is a keen observer of the human condition, and his books are filled with telling detail and the interior dialogue of his characters. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to celebrate Mark Twain’s birthday in the company of one of Twain’s biggest fans!

Lecture starts 7 pm. Birthday cake, champagne, and a book signing will follow the discussion.

Tickets to Twain’s 183rd birthday lecture are $18.35.

Programs at The Mark Twain House & Museum are made possible in part by support from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s United Arts Campaign.
