On Thursday, March 17, the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College and WENY-TV delivered books about Mark Twain to third graders at Candor Elementary School. The program, which has been in place for about ten years, provides each student with a book that they can keep to learn about the famous author.
"The book is geared toward elementary school kids, it's a book called Who is Mark Twain? by Scholastic Publishing. It's a book that's filled with a lot of illustrations but has a lot of important facts about Mark Twain. I think it's a really accessible book for students to learn about a really important literary figure," explained Joe Lemak, the Director of the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College.
