Some Seats Still Available for Mark My Words with Authors Baldacci, Turow, Grafton, Hoffman

Baldacci
Mark My Words: A Conversation with Sue Grafton, Alice Hoffman and Scott Turow 8 pm Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the Shubert Theater, New Haven

Turow
The Mark Twain House and Museum's Annual 'Mark My Words' event -- three wildly popular authors interviewed by a celebrity host -- has become a mainstay of the Connecticut literary scene.

The third conversation in the series features Sue Grafton, Alice Hoffman and Scott Turow.

Grafton
Grafton's Kinsey Milhone alphabet mysteries ("A is for Alibi" was just the start); Hoffman's acclaimed novels, and her unexpected new guide to living; and Turow's tales of power and the legal life are so beloved and popular that these authors have a total of nearly 150 million books in print. All have produced numerous New York Times bestselling titles.

Hoffman
The on-stage conversation will be moderated by Baldacci, himself an author of massively popular and complex political thrillers. Baldacci is a devotee of Mark Twain's work - and a member of The Mark Twain House and Museum's Board of Trustees.

Hoffman has published 21 novels, three books of short fiction, and eight books for children and young adults. Her books - which include "Practical Magic," "Aquamarine" and "The River King," have been published in more than twenty translations and more than one hundred foreign editions.

Added bonus! This evening will be the national book launch of The Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 2. Benjamin Higgins, the editor of the autobiography will be in attendance for a book signing.

Past events featured John Grisham, Baldacci, Jodi Picoult, Steve Berry, Sandra Brown and R. L. Stine.
