Chambers Street Theatre for 11:00am on May 31st, 2018

Mark Twain wrote "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" for a young audience, but all ages have enjoyed this book. We are just beginning to read the whole book and you can listen without trying to read the accents as Twain wrote them. Ruth reads as Twain wrote the way people spoke at the time, and it was hard going the first time I read "Huck Finn" in my youth.

Thanks to all the folk I meet in town who recognize my voice and say how much they like my show. I like every one of you and we always have a nice chat about Mark Twain. You all are the best of people.

Here's our offering for your collection.  It's an ode to our kitty Katie ...

 

A wonderfully warm Katie Cat

would come running whenever you sat.

She'd rumble and purr,

and had wonderful fur 

to cuddle and nuzzle and pat.
