At a Glance

Mark Twain defined both American literature and satire. After failing as a gold prospector in Nevada, he fell in love with San Francisco, which he described as “the most sociable city in the Union.” He served as both a reporter for the San Francisco Call, and as a drinking buddy of firefighter Tom Sawyer. Twain’s first attempt at fiction, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” made him a national sensation. This lecture offers an intimate and humorous look at one of America’s literary treasures.
