MARK TWAIN IN THE MARGINS

Monday, November 5th at 6:30 pm

Mark Twain had a habit of writing in the margins of books.  It didn’t matter if the books actually belonged to him!  He commented acerbically on the authors and their work; “by an ass” was a favorite phrase.  His longer comments tell us about the man and his thoughts. His marginalia have been called his “conversation” with the books he was reading. There are many examples of this in the Mark Twain House & Museum library collection. Mallory Howard from the Mark Twain House will be bringing this interesting program to the library.  Let’s find out what he wrote!
