EDISON – Performer David Kennedy hopes to give Edison community members a new appreciation for famed American author Mark Twain.
In the one-man presentation “Mark Twain, Wit and Wisdom”, Kennedy appears in costume as Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens). Selections from his autobiography, “Roughing It,” “The Innocents Abroad,” and other works will be presented.
Having published extensively and lectured throughout the world, by the end of his life, Clemens had become known as the quintessential American author. His work captured the spirit, character and even dialect of a diverse nation.
The program will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 14, at 10:30am at the Jewish Community Center of Middlessex County, 1775 Oak Tree Road, Edison. It is free and open to the entire community as space allows. This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
