Mark Twain

Series: Meet the Past
Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III launches its second season with a conversation with Mark Twain, as portrayed by veteran Chautauqua performer George Frein. Mark Twain’s novels, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, established him as one of the great American writers, while some accounts (like that of Ernest Hemingway) cite him as the source of American literature. This event is a part of The Big Read, and taped by KCPT for broadcast. Major funding for this season of Meet the Past has been provided by the Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust and Ken and Cindy McClain.
