With “Spirited Women”, The Mark Twain House & Museum sets out to explore trailblazing and adventurous women—as chronicled in two new novels—who claim their power by any means necessary. Queens of London is a tale of the dark glamour and sisterhood of Britain’s first female crime syndicate, and how they managed the ever-shifting meaning of justice. Finding Margaret Fuller is a story, with a star-studded cast and sweeping, epic historical events, about a woman who transcended the rigid roles ascribed to women and changed history, all on her own terms.

Admission with one book (pick up at event): $45 for non-members, $40 for MTH&M Members. General admission (no books): $10 for non-members, free for MTH&M Members. REGISTER HERE.

Copies of Queens of London and Finding Margaret Fuller will be signed by the authors at the event.
