60th Annual Mark Twain Library Book Fair
This year’s highlights include an assortment of books by Mark Twain, an extensive collection of classical LPs from a radio host’s personal library, many classic novels translated into Dutch, a special leatherette bound collection of Louis L’Amour novels, a wide-ranging collection of plays, poetry and literature translated into Hungarian, an incredible selection of geography books, a large collection of beautifully illustrated children’s Bible stories, an extensive collection of foreign language books for children, and childhood treasures published mainly before 1985.
The Mark Twain Library Book Fair is the oldest – and one of the largest – in New England. The library was founded by Samuel Clemens – Mark Twain, himself – in 1908. Twain moved to Redding in 1907 and had more books than would fit in his new home. He donated thousands of his own titles to help get the library started; today, over a century later, the Book Fair raises the funds to keep his library thriving.
