The Mark Twain House & Museum, Talk

February 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

John Hendrickson, senior editor at The Atlantic, takes us on a personal journey of the personal dynamics, professional challenges, and complex issues stutterers like him face daily. An account of perseverance, Life on Delay is a narrative about not giving up, and a glimpse into the process of making peace with our past and present selves. John will be joined by Clint Smith, fellow author and colleague at The Atlantic, who described Life On Delay as a book brimming “with empathy and honesty…It moved me in ways that I haven’t experienced before. It’s fantastic.”

 Copies of Life on Delay are available for purchase through the Mark Twain Store; proceeds benefit The Mark Twain House & Museum. Books will be shipped after the event. We regret that we are NOT able to ship books outside the United States as it is cost-prohibitive to do so.
