Savage Girl Talk-Twain House

For anyone wondering when I am venturing forth to speak about Savage Girl, one such event is coming up on March 14, a Friday, at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut. I am extremely happy to speak at Twain’s genteel abode because some of his early work informed Savage Girl. Specifically, the great writer penned Roughing It about his days in Virginia City, Nevada as a cub reporter in the 1860s.

This is how he looked at that time.

I drew on the rollicking material in Roughing It for the first part of Savage Girl, which takes place in 1875 Virginia City at the height of the silver boom.

If you can make it to Hartford on March 14th, I’d love to have you there. I plan to read a bit from the novel and also talk about some wonderful images I’ll bring to flesh out the history behind the fiction.
