Trouble at Home: Mark Twain and Epidemics

Jul 09, 2020 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Throughout Samuel Clemens’s – Mark Twain’s — lifetime, which stretched from 1835 to 1910, epidemics were a part of family life in all the locales where he settled and traveled: Missouri, the West, Europe, the Middle East, and Hartford, Connecticut.

On Thursday, July 9, at 5:30 p.m. K. Patrick Ober, M.D., a longtime friend of The Mark Twain House & Museum, and author of “Mark Twain and Medicine: ‘Any Mummery Will Cure,'” will speak on “Mark Twain and Epidemics.” He will be the fifth interviewee in “Trouble at Home,” the online series that, for the moment, is taking on the role of the museum’s beloved 10-year-old series “The Trouble Begins at 5:30.” He will be interviewed by Mark Twain House historian and founder of the “Trouble Begins” series Steve Courtney.
