Greetings -- I have been retrograde in alerting the Forum to tonight's free virtual edition of Hartford's "The Trouble Begins" series -- it's 7:00 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, May 4 (and generally these are available a few days later under the "Digital Offerings" tab on the Mark Twain House website).
The subject is big and timely -- "Mark Twain and Critical Race Theory." The presenters are stellar -- Ann Ryan and Laura Skandera Trombley. You can read more and register here:

Laura Skandera Trombley and Ann Ryan explore Mark Twain’s writing as just one example of how thoroughly American it is to try to unravel the knot of race, racism, and U.S. history.
