“There is something good and motherly about Washington, the grand old benevolent National Asylum for the helpless.” – The Gilded Age
What city could possibly deserve more scrutiny from America’s favorite wit? Twain’s love/hate affair with Washington, D.C. started with his first novel, THE GILDED AGE, and continued until the end of his life.
Join the White Suited Avenger as he walks the halls of power, tweaks the noses of political twits, and lays waste to the waste in Washington, D.C.
John Muller, journalist, historian and author of the new book MARK TWAIN IN WASHINGTON, D.C.: THE ADVENTURES OF A CAPITAL CORRESPONDENT
Donald T. Bliss, former U.S. Ambassador, great-grandson of Mark Twain’s publisher, and author of MARK TWAIN’S TALE OF TODAY
Vincent Sullivan, President of The Mark Twain Society of Virginia and Historic Interpreter for The Mark Twain House & Museum
