ANNIVERSARY OF MARK TWAIN’S BIRTH

Born on this day in 1835, beloved writer Samuel Langhorne Clemens provided us with endless entertainment through numerous novels, nonfiction books, short stories, and essays–all despite having ended formal schooling after the fifth grade. Baby Clemens arrived prematurely in a two-room shack in Florida, Missouri, on November 30th, 1835. He was a frail infant and sickly child, prompting his mother to admit, “When I first saw him, I could see no promise in him.” Little did she know!
