[Surnetkids] Mark Twain

Dear Reader,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We celebrated outside with 20 family members and close friends. As usual, San Diego did its part by providing us with a sunny afternoon. On Friday, I went boogie boarding in the Pacific, and thought of family members back east. Hope you also had an opportunity to spend time with those you love.

See ya on the Net,

Mark Twain


Mark Twain Printable(** for Premium Members only)

Mark Twain (born Samuel Langhorne Clemens on November 30, 1835) is one of America’s greatest authors and humorists. He was celebrated in his time, and despite being frequently banned, is still read on campuses today. Of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” Ernest Hemingway said, “…all American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.”

Ducksters: Biography: Mark Twain

Visit Ducksters for a short biography, a handful of quotes, a few fun facts, and links to related topics. “Young Samuel grew up in the small town of Hannibal, Missouri with his sister and two brothers. The town of Hannibal was located right on the Mississippi River and Samuel loved to watch the river boats pass by as a kid. Many of Mark Twain’s stories were inspired by his own adventures on the river.”

PBS: Mark Twain

You can meet the filmmakers and go behind the scenes of Ken Burns’ PBS Mark Twain television special, but the best reason to visit is the Interactive Scrapbook. Mark Twain was a lifelong scrapbook fan. He carried one with him wherever he went. In fact, he invented a self-sticking scrapbook that actually made him a bit of money. “Inspired by his invention, this interactive scrapbook tells Twain’s life story through a collection of texts, photos, illustrations, and clippings from his day.”
