“Mark Twain” comes to the Simpsonville Arts Center February 10th

February 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Chautauqua’s “History comes Alive” on Friday February 10th, 2-3:30 p.m.

Mark Twain was arguably America’s first celebrity. Everybody knows Mark Twain. He is the most quoted humorist ever. His fictional characters, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher are more fondly remembered than most American presidents. It has been said of the influence he has had on our language, “Mark Twain wrote the way we talk, and now we talk the way he wrote.”

At age 70, at the height of his fame, Mark Twain began to advertise his presence everywhere he went by wearing white suits in winter as well as summer. The secrets this man revealed were as carefully crafted as his art and as his personality.

Pop over to the Simpsonville Arts Center on Friday February 10th and enjoy 90 minutes with George Frein as Mark Twain.  FREE and open to the public.
