NRH Community Read: Life on the Mississippi

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Join us for an engaging discussion of Mark Twain’s "Life on the Mississippi" through WebEx. This book is free for immediate download for all NRH Library patrons through OverDrive.

Before his literary career took off and he emerged as one of America's foremost men of letters, Mark Twain worked as a steamboat pilot in the antebellum South and Midwest. This fascinating account offers a brief history of commercial boating in the period and a probing, insightful, and eminently entertaining look at Twain's own experiences.
