Mark Twain and Early Printing Techniques 

Join the Friends of the Library for an illustrated talk by Steve Robison, printer at Tahoe Letterpress. Mr. Robison will explain how Mark Twain wound up in Virginia City, and on occasion in the Lake Tahoe basin. He will also share his discovery of a vast collection of antique 1860s types from the Territorial Enterprise newspaper in Virginia City where Mark Twain was a reporter and city editor during the early silver discoveries of the Comstock Lode. Steve will show those attending some of the types that Mark Twain may have touched, and you can touch it too! He will also educate us about Mark Twain’s early training in typesetting, showing us the tools and techniques involved.

Lake Tahoe History Talks 

This month, join Lake Tahoe Historical Society as they welcome authors Chris and Lisa Couper with their presentation, “Bits and Pieces from the Echo Summit Route.” The Coupers wrote the history of Sierra-at-Tahoe last year and will share information through a slideshow presentation about the history of the summit from footpath to a two-lane highway and why it didn’t become a four-lane highway like I80.

Refreshments will be served. The History Museum and Bookstore will be open until 8:00 p.m. after the presentation. Suitable for all ages, Tahoe talks are free, but donations are gladly accepted.
