Atlanta History Center says
Based on historical facts, personal journals, and published writings and letters, Twain’s End is the reimagining of the complicated relationship between Mark Twain and his private secretary Isabel V. Lyon, and an intimate look into the personal life of one of literary history’s most fascinating figures.

Taking the reader on a journey from New York’s Hudson Valley, to Florence, Italy, to Bermuda, to Twain’s final home in Connecticut, and envisioning how Isabel went from being a beloved confident and lover of Twain to a woman he ended up slandering in the press, determined to destroy, Twain’s End tells the story of a forgotten woman behind a great literary figure, giving her a voice that has been silenced throughout history.

Lynn Cullen grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her recent novel, Mrs. Poe, a national bestseller, has been named a Target Book Club Pick, an NPR 2013 Great Read, and an Indie Next List selection. She lives in Atlanta surrounded by her own large family, and, like Mark Twain, enjoys being bossed around by cats.

Admission for all lectures is $5 members, $10 nonmembers, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted. Reservations are required, please call 404.814.4150 or reserve tickets online at
