Gary Robertson, as Mark Twain, entertained Ford’s Colony Friends and Neighbors Club members at its February meeting.


Mark TwainSamuel Clemens, whose pen name was Mark Twain, has a very high place on any list of great Americans, and in his day he was the most well-known American in the world. Despite having limited formal education, he became one of our country’s greatest authors-William Faulkner called him the “father of American Literature”. But his skill as a lecturer was perhaps the biggest reason for his fame. His humor, wit, and wisdom mesmerized audiences. Gary Robertson not only brought the skills and personality of the “Greatest American Humorist” to life, but discussed key elements that marked this truly remarkable life.
