United for Libraries, in partnership with Connecticut Center for the Book, Connecticut Humanities, and Hartford Public Library, will designate two Connecticut Literary Landmarks, the Mark Twain House and Museum and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, on October 16. The joint dedication ceremony will take place at the Mark Twain Visitor Center in Hartford. Mark Twain (born Samuel L. Clemens, 1835–1910) was a writer, journalist, and lecturer known for such writings as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896) was an abolitionist who published over 30 books during her lifetime, including Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
