Harry Katz - "Mark Twain's America"
Warwick's, Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30pm
Warwick's is hosting author and former curator Harry Katz on Wednesday, October 29th at 7:30pm to present his latest historical work, Mark Twain's America. Harry Katz is a former Head Curator in the Division of Prints & Photographs at the Library of Congress. His books include Civil War Sketch Book, Baseball Americana, and Herblock. Reserved Seating is available. Only books purchased from Warwick's will be signed. Please call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 for details. Mark Twain is an American icon. We now know him as the author of classics, but in his day he was a controversial satirist and public figure who traveled the world and healed post-Civil War America with his tall tales, witty anecdotes, and humorous but insightful novels and stories. Twain's legacy continues to flourish over 100 years after his death.

Mark Twain's America features spectacular examples of Twain memorabilia and period Americana from the unsurpassed collections of the Library of Congress: rare illustrations, vintage photographs, popular and fine prints, period views, caricatures, cartoons, maps, and more. Excerpts from Twain's writings are framed in a lively narrative by author Harry L. Katz.

Covering the years between 1850 and 1910, the book gives readers an intimate view of Twain's many roles in life: Mississippi river boat pilot, California gold prospector, "printer's devil" at a small-town newspaper, muckraking journalist, novelist, public speaker extraordinaire, our first major celebrity author. Through letters, political cartoons, photographs and more, Mark Twain's America offers an inside look into Twain's life as well as the literary, social, and political life of America during his time.
