Hartford House Hosts Conversation About Mark Twain and Spiritualism

The Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, CT will be holding its third “Trouble at Home” series at the Hartford house. This Thursday, June 11, at 5:30 p.m. EDT, Steve Courtney, Curatorial Special Projects Coordinator at the Hartford House, will be interviewing Assistant Curator Mallory Howard and educator Jason Scappaticci on “Mark Twain and Spiritualism” – how the 19th century movement affected America, the neighborhood of Nook Farm, and Clemens and his family in particular.
