By the Book: The Man Hunting Down Mark Twain's Library
Professor Alan Gribben, Auburn University
What if we could reconstruct the library of the humorist, author, and literary icon that is Mark Twain? What would we be able to find out about how he read, and why is that knowledge important? We find out with Alan Gribben, professor of English at Auburn University, who's spent the better part of his academic life hunting down the books of Mark Twain. He's also (not coincidentally) the author of Mark Twain's Literary Resources: A Reconstruction of His Library and Reading. After that, we also give a book readers' review of the adaptation of Good Omens, and reply to some correspondence.
