linda morris…almost gone. There’s only one more speaker in the lecture series segment of our yearlong “The Adventures of Mark Twain: A Centenary Celebration.” Our last speaker will be Linda Morris, professor of English, emerita, at the University of California, Davis, and author of Gender Play in Mark Twain: Cross-Dressing and Transgression. She’ll be speaking on “Escaping in Style: Racial and Gender Crossing in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” on May 4 at 3:30 p.m. in Room LL430. The SDSU Women’s Studies Department is kindly co-sponsoring this event.

Don’t fret…we have more Twain on the way this fall. The library’s Special Collections Department will host a Mark Twain exhibit that’s being loaned to us by Vanderbilt University, and we’ll be screening several films related to Mark Twain. I’ll let you know the dates, times, and locations as soon as they’re announced.
