Take a Trip to the World of Mark Twain

If you’re anything like me, you spend too many lunches at your desk catching up with the world while you finish that turkey wrap you picked up from People’s Cafe. But even if you’re having something other than turkey wrap for lunch, just because you’re sitting at your desk doesn’t mean that you’re stuck there. For instance, you could take a trip this lunchtime to the world of Mark Twain.

www.thisismarktwain.com brings to life the Autobiography of Mark Twain in video slideshows, images, interviews with the editors and other Mark Twain scholars, and audio clips of excerpts from the book. The site takes readers behind the scenes to view materials only available at the Mark Twain Papers of The Bancroft Library. The reader can interact with the content in chronological order or follow the same non-linear method that Mark Twain used to tell the story of his life in his Autobiography.

We’ve added a section highlighting the brand new Readers Edition, which has an exclusive excerpt from the highly anticipated Volume Two of the autobiography.
