When Mark Twain came to Michigan – Thursday, Nov 8, 2018 6:30pm – 7:30pm
This lecture and multi-media presentation was developed after several years of research and the ongoing collecting of old photographs of this world famous author. The lecture focuses on a period in Samuel Clemens life when he took the name, Mark Twain, and came to Michigan. The presentation also covers stories of his early childhood in the 1850’s. We obtained a diary of his travels in Michigan, which was the beginning of his World Tour. He
traveled with his wife and daughter plus his business manager. The diary provides interesting comments about the St. Clair Flats and sites along the way to Mackinac Island and other parts of Michigan. The lecture along with 150 or more photos presents a time line of events in his family life. You will see the good years and his times of great loss. Program length 45 minutes plus Q and A.
