AN EVENING OF MARK TWAIN with BENJAMIN GRIFFIN
The Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 1
Thursday, March 24 at 7 PM
Join us for a fascinating and illuminating evening with editor Benjamin Griffin, who will discuss the life of Mark Twain as revealed in Twain's uncensored autobiography.
The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain's death. In celebration of this important milestone, his story - a "treasure trove for serious Twain readers" (Booklist) - has been published in its entirety and exactly as he left it. Here is his authentic voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave - just as he intended. Twain left strict instructions that his autobiography be left unpublished for 100 years so that when it came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and therefore free to speak his "whole frank mind."
