About the Journal
The Mark Twain Annual publishes articles related to Mark Twain and those who surrounded him and serves as an outlet for new scholarship as well as new pedagogical approaches. It is the official publication of the Mark Twain Circle of America, an international association of people interested in the life and work of Mark Twain.
The Mark Twain Circle is an international association of people interested in the life and work of Mark Twain. The Circle was formed in 1986 at the Modern Language Association convention in New York. Although many members are academic specialists, the Circle also includes many nonacademic Twain enthusiasts. The Circle sponsors sessions at MLA, ALA, and other regional organizations. The Circle is in communication with other Mark Twain organizations, including those associated with sites important in his life, and cooperates with them.
