Mark Twain comes to Galveston

at the Rosenberg Library

Wortham Auditorium, First Floor

Rosenberg Library~2310 Sealy Street~Galveston, Texas~77550

Mark Twain 100 years later, performed by Dave Ehlert, a Branson, MO favorite for years. The Rosenberg Library invites you to spend an evening with one of America's greatest humorists, Mark Twain, in a live performance by professional entertainer Dave Ehlert.

A Branson, Missouri favorite for years, Ehlert's portrayal of Mark Twain centers on his many musings and famous quotations, such as, "The only sure things are death and taxes ... but at least death doesn't get worse every year!" Twain's life story wound around these quips, and he always placed a strong emphasis on literacy: "One who can read, but won't, has no advantage over one who can't."

Mr. Ehlert's goal is to perform his version of Mark Twain for libraries across the country and to date he has performed as America's Favorite Storyteller in fifteen states, charming diverse audiences with Twain's humor and wisdom.

Light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
