Laura DeMarco Presents Mark Twain’s America

When: Sat., Nov. 9 2019

In her new book, Mark Twain's America Then and Now, reporter Laura DeMarco of the Plain Dealer examines how America has changed since Twain's time by comparing how places he visited looked back then to how they look now. The book includes a number of references to Cleveland, notably the Cleveland Herald Building and Case Hall. At 1 p.m. today at the Cleveland Public Library's Center for Local and Global History, on the sixth floor of the Louis Stokes Wing, she'll participate in a book signing. The author of Lost Cleveland and Cleveland Then and Now, DeMarco uses nearly 200 pictures to trace Mark Twain's journey through 69 locations, including Cleveland and Cincinnati. Admission to the event is free. (Niesel)
