MARK MY WORDS was a once-in-a-lifetime event which was made possible under the patronage of Montblanc. It was a conversation between three of America’s most popular and beloved authors, David Baldacci, John Grisham, and Jodi Picoult.  Moderated by author and community activist Malaak Compton-Rock, this was a unique opportunity to hear writers talk about writing, the publishing industry, the fate of the book, and, of course, the legacy of the man who has been called “The Lincoln of our Literature” -  Mark Twain.

With the breathtaking Woolsey Hall at Yale University serving as the backdrop for this unforgettable night, audiences laughed, learnt and were inspired by these New York Times-bestselling authors. Twain received two honorary degrees from Yale University:  a Master of Arts in 1888 and a Doctorate of Literature in 1901.  The Mark Twain House & Museum is delighted to present this historic occasion in such a historic setting.
