One of the most beloved programs at The Mark Twain House & Museum has been The Trouble Begins at 5:30 — a program that takes its name from Twain’s own ads and posters for his lectures, which announced that “the Trouble Begins at 8.” This is “The Trouble’s” tenth birthday, and to celebrate during this time of sequestering, sheltering, and Zooming we’re offering a series of half-hour online interviews called Trouble At Home.

We’re launching the series with Dr. Kerry Driscoll, Associate Editor at the Mark Twain Papers & Project at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Driscoll is professor of English emeritus at the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford; author of Mark Twain Among the Indians and Other Indigenous Peoples (available here); and, in fact, the very first speaker in The Trouble Begins at 5:30 series on May 19, 2010.

Join Dr. Driscoll for a conversation with Steve Courtney, Twain House historian and founder of the series, where she will tell us why Mark Twain’s huge collection of unpublished works, letters, and journals ended up in California; describe the cast of characters who take care of it now; and share tales of the literary and historical mysteries she unravels on a daily basis.
