Classic Tom Sawyer Illustrations on Display at Mark Twain Museum
Despite the winding down of the summer season, tourists and other Mark Twain enthusiasts continue to flock to the Boyhood Home and Museum.
The museum is currently playing host to an exhibit of original sketches from the 1955 edition of the Adventures of Tom Sawyer. There have been many illustrations from the many editions of the that iconic work over the years, but for many readers, especially those in the baby boom generation, the works presently on display at the museum should be especially familiar.
The 2014 Music Under the Stars season is history, with another highly successful season in the books. Plans are already underway for the 2015 season of free concerts on the grounds of the Boyhood Home.
And, Hannibal residents are reminded that hometown folks can tour any of the Mark Twain properties free of charge.
