If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would you choose? Mark Twain, the great American novelist, would be high on my list. His ability to tell a good story with, no doubt, a mid west drawl, would be great entertainment. I am sure he would make me laugh and possibly bring a tear to the eye with some of his stories.
My hobby is to interview amazing people who have left us a legacy. So, I decided to interview Mark Twain for my book called: Amazing People of New York. He lived there for many years, although born in Hannibal, Missouri in 1835 and named Samuel Langhorne Clemens. He worked on boats along the Mississippi River before touring through the USA and overseas. He invented Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and used Mark Twain as a pen name.
Now I have invented an interview with him which starts as follows.”They say that money does not grow on trees. It certainly seemed to grow near those on Wall Street, New York.’
It is Mark Twain’s birthday. I hope he would have appreciated my virtual interview as much as we all appreciate his books.
