Marvin Cole as Mark TwainPart of the 2nd Sundays @ The Center Series
This month we are featuring Stories by Marvin Cole
Come and spend the afternoon with Marvin Cole, a professional Chautauqua storyteller as Mark Twain on an imaginary river boat ride down the Mississippi River. Listen to live Dixieland Jazz music by Joel Helfand Band. Create the sounds of the river and its soft, pleasant summer breeze as it surrounds you while you listen to Mark Twain and the stories of Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer and Jim come to life.
Marvin has been impersonating Mark Twain and interpreting his writings for 40 years in over 20 states and the paddlewheel river boats on the Mississippi, Ohio and Sacramento Rivers. Born in Western North Carolina he attended Western Carolina University and Indiana University and has worked in colleges in Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia, Pakistan and Afganistan. He retired in 1994 after 13 years as President of Dekalb College in Atlanta.

Relax in the warm and intimate setting of The Center and let yourself unwind as you listen to live music. Then, allow our professional storytellers to take you on a journey through time, evoking history, memory, and connection.
