Twain Time

Our ELA class is continuing a study of the author Mark Twain. After reading excerpts from Susy Clemen's biography of her father, we've moved on to look at the story that put Twain on the literary map, "The Celebrated Jumping frog of Calaveras County."

By the way, while I was a college student at SUNY Potsdam, I took a course from Dr. Laura Skandera-Trombley, who went on to become the pre-eminent Twain scholar working today. I sure wish I had paid more attention in her class!
