|Time:||10:00 to 12:00|
|Location:||Seabury Heritage Hall|

|Although his most famous works were set along the Mississippi River of his childhood, Mark Twain composed those novels while living in the elegant literary community of Nook Farm, a neighborhood of Hartford. He lived in a Hartford of industry, energy, and immigration while celebrating the pre-Civil War South of his youth. This program explores the importance of Connecticut and Hartford to Twain's life and work, including his famous neighbors, such as novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe, travel writer and journalist Charles Dudley Warner, Civil War hero and Senator Joseph Hawley, and female suffrage campaigner Isabella Beecher Hooker.|
