Mark Twain and the American Presidents

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Event Details

Mark Twain’s frank observations about American culture in the Gilded Age often ring true today. Corruption, national identity, the power of big business, and America’s global role were just as contested then as they are now. His funny, insightful observations about the presidents of his day apply readily to the modern presidency.

Hear from Mallory Howard, Assistant Curator of the Mark Twain House and Museum, along with Jason Scappaticci, in a stimulating presentation on the nation's foremost observer of politics. The presentation will engage with topical, current events for our community while considering the impact of history.
