Mark Twain on ABC Radio National and Cowra Classics

Cowra Classics Book Club are onto something  they are already reading up on Mark Twain and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to discuss at the next meeting on Tuesday 23 March from 12.30-1.30pm at Cowra Library. ABC's Radio National are also championing the writer by dedicating a program to his works: “This year is the hundredth anniversary of the death of one of America's greatest writers and humorists: Mark Twain. Books like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, made Twain easily the most popular American author of his generation. But those books are just a small fraction of his prodigious output — some of which he banned from publication until years after his death.” Actor and Mark Twain fan Chris Wallace put together a show based on several of Twain's unpublished works which aired on ABC's Radio National recently  here is the link to Late Night Live:
