Steampunk Lecture Mark Twain House and Museum

The more we learn about an author, the greater we can appreciate their literature in the context of their life and times. Each of our lectures explores some aspect of Mark Twain. We want to know him because he was the iconic American of his age. 

We performed his lectures as he did. Changing the script to suit the mood, the audience, the exhaustion from twenty-four straight days of performing. Missing Family. Years of research, writing, performing as him goes into every lecture.

The following is a list of past lecture topics. Each runs 45 minutes, but it could run five hours.and is followed by a Q&A. You can add to the list, change format to suit your group.
