Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) (11/30/1835 – 4/21/1910) is one of America’s most beloved writers and storytellers. His delightful humor and wry charm have captivated the imaginations of generations of readers. He is best known for his novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and The Prince and the Pauper, but his other works, such as Roughing it, and Life on the Mississippi, are read widely, as well. Christened the Father of American Literature by William Faulkner, Mark Twain’s spirit is always with us and his lively characters and American wit will always endure.
