Clemens Conversations: Mark Twain in the Margins
Wednesday May 24 at 12 PM (Noon) ET
$6.50 per virtual connection, free for museum members

Mark Twain had a lifelong habit of writing in the margins of the books he read – and it did not always matter whether the book actually belonged to him. He commented acerbically on the authors and their work – “by an ass” was a favorite phrase – and made other, longer comments that tell us about the man and his thoughts. His marginalia are his “conversations” with the books he was reading, and there are many examples of this in the library collection of The Mark Twain House & Museum.

Clemens Conversations are hosted on Zoom. Once you purchase your ticket, keep an eye out for an emailed receipt, which will contain a link to register for the Zoom session. 

In order to facilitate free conversation among attendees, these sessions are not recorded and will not be available for viewing after the event.
