 HEAR Now will once again be presenting  A Celebration of Mark Twain as part of the 2020 Festival.

This year's Festival focuses on Twain's stories that feature female characters from his fiction works like Huckleberry Finn as well as his non-fiction journals and newspaper articles.

Carol Monda and Sean Pratt are this year's Mark Twain mentors and will be heard on Saturday along with the winners of this year's Jeff Kraus Performance Scholarships.

Today's narrators are:
Teri Clark Linden reading from Eve's Diary;
Steve White reading from Californian Tale;
Hillary Huber reading from Huck Finn;
Lisa Ware reading from In Defense of Harriet Shelley;
and special guest Rob Alvey discussing the real Becky Thatcher

These readings go 'live' today and will be available on the HEAR Now website to enjoy throughout the Festival weekend.
