Subject: Elmira's "Twain and Youth" Symposium (October

Dear Twain Scholars,

On the weekend of October 7-8, 2016, the Elmira College Center for Mark Twain Studies will be hosting the first Quarry Farm Weekend Symposium.  The theme of this gathering is "Twain and Youth," honoring the forthcoming book *Mark Twain and Youth: Studies in His Life and Writing* (edited by Kevin MacDonnell and Kent Rasmussen).  All proceeds of this book will go directly to the four Twain Centers.

The keynote speaker is Jon Clinch, author of *Finn*, the secret history of Huck Finn's father, *Kings of the Earth*, and *The Thief of Auschwitz*.
The registration fee of $150 includes dinner and drinks on Friday, all three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.  Please note that all events will take place at Quarry Farm.  The October weather and the Fall season should make for a beautiful setting for scholarly discussion, camaraderie, and picturesque views.

I have attached the official flyer with all of the symposium information to this message.

Please contact [log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask] if you wish to register or if you have any questions.

Take care,
Joe Lemak
