February 14 • 6:00 pm


The celebrated storyteller “Sean of the South” will join us to talk about his new book You Are My Sunshine—a laugh-out-loud funny true story about a (really long) bike adventure that he took with his wife, Jamie. With hilarious, touching, and sometimes terrifying moments, it’ll remind you what’s most important in life including the value of keeping your promises and the importance of connection in your most treasured relationships. And it might even inspire you to plan an adventure of your own. 

 In-Person Event: $10 non-members, $5 members. Admission price will be deducted from your signed copy of the book with purchase. REGISTER HERE.  

 Copies of You Are My Sunshine are available for purchase through the Mark Twain Store; proceeds benefit The Mark Twain House & Museum. Books will be shipped after the event. We regret that we are not able to ship books outside the United States as it is cost-prohibitive to do so.
