The Adventures Started Here: Writers Read for Twain

On September 23, an all-star group of authors will gather at the
financially-troubled Mark Twain House in Hartford, CT, to read from
their favorite Twain selections in support of this American landmark.

Appearing will be Tom Perrotta (The Abstinence Teacher), David Gates
(Jernigan), Arthur Phillips (Prague), Tasha Alexander (A Fatal Waltz),
Philip Beard (Dear Zoe), Andrew Carroll (Operation Homecoming),
Phillip Lopate (Against Joie de Vivre), Stewart O'Nan (Last Night at
the Lobster), Amy Mackinnon (Tethered), Robert Hicks (Widow of the
South) and me (Finn). All authors are paying their own way, and in
most cases books for sale are being donated by their publishers.

Tickets are $40 for the readings and booksigning, and $100 for the
readings and the signing and a private reception with the authors.
