As part of the Adult Summer Reading Program’s “Stuff You Should Have Read in High School” week the Dexter District Library welcomes back Al & David Eicher to present “When Mark Twain Came to Michigan”.

This lecture will focus on a period in Samuel Clemens life when he took the name, Mark Twain, and came to Michigan. The program focuses on Twain’s own words taken from a diary that included his travels in Michigan which was the beginning of his World Tour. The diary provides interesting comments about the St. Clair Flats and sites along the way to Mackinac Island and other parts of Michigan. The lecture will also include stories of his early childhood.

The lecture along with 150 or more photos presents a time line of events in his family life. You will see the good years and his times of great loss. Program length 45 minutes plus Q and A.

Patrons do not have to be enrolled in the Adult Summer Reading Program.  All are welcome to attend.
