The Bohemians

Mark Twain and the San Francisco Writers Who Reinvented American Literature
Event detail
 

An illustrated lecture with author Ben Tarnoff.

Tarnoff's latest book focuses on Mark Twain's early years as a struggling writer in Civil War-era San Francisco and on the countercultural community he discovered there. It was a haven for weirdos, gamblers, crooks and draft dodgers, but later became a literary laboratory for new kinds of writing, eventually influencing several of the directions American literature went during the decades that followed.

A book sale and signing will follow the program.
