Mark Twain in the Margins on Wednesday, January 6 at 6:30 pm on Zoom

Assistant Curator Mallory Howard from the Mark Twain House and Museum will present “Mark Twain in the Margins” via Zoom, a program brought to you by The Brookfield Library and Sherman Library. 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 and made 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.
