Iconic American author Mark Twain died exactly one hundred years ago this April. To commemorate that, events are happening all over the nation. Here in Chattanooga, Roy Morris Jr. will have a book signing on the Delta Queen riverboat on Thursday, April 22nd.
Morris’s book is called Lighting Out For the Territory… how Samuel Clemens Headed Out West, and Became Mark Twain.
Many biographies of Twain have been written, but this one focuses on a lesser-known part of Twain’s life… his six-year journey to the wild West, where young Sam Clemens developed his persona and his literary style, transforming himself into Mark Twain.
