Mark Twain Comes Alive

Forget about Jim Post or Hal Holbrook or Val Kilmer.  Stuart Corsa is chomping at the bit to show us that he too can portray Mark Twain to perfection. And, at Books on First, he will have two opportunities to show us his stuff (courtesy of Midway Village Museum where he volunteers).

On Saturday, 12 March, 4pm, Corsa will present his "adult" show, not XXX-rated, but in his own words, "Politically sensitive need not show."  Mark Twain (nom de plume of Samuel Clemens) had some caustically pithy comments on politics and the world at large.

 And, on Saturday, 2 April, Mark Twain returns for kids of all ages with a reading of The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.  The copy for sale on our shelves is barely still in print, with fifteen wonderful original woodcuts by Alan J Robinson.  This is an entirely delightful package.

Hope to see you then.
