Writers Offered A Chance To Work In Mark Twain’s Library

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Aspiring writers are being offered a chance for some quiet work time in the library of Mark Twain’s Connecticut home.

The library experience is an add-on to the fifth annual Writers Weekend being held Saturday and Sunday at the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford.

The annual writers retreat features speakers, writing workshops and presentations at the historical home where Twain lived as an adult from 1874 to 1891.

The retreat costs $180 to attend. The library experience is an additional $30.

Twain wrote many of his best-known works while living in the house, including “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.”

Twain was born Samuel Clemens in Florida, Missouri, on Nov. 30, 1835.
