Catch the Twain!

This nationally recognized program promotes an appreciation for humanity, education, and literacy. An uproariously authentic characterization of Mark Twain's stories and lecture series with a first-person, Chautauqua-style audience question and answer session included. As Mark Twain, Warren Brown bridges the lessons of history with the demands of contemporary living in the spirit of America's greatest humorist. Mark Twain said, " reading from the book you are telling another person's tale at secondhand; you are a mimic and not the person involved; you are an artificiality, not a reality; whereas in telling the tale without the book you absorb the character and presently become the man himself."
