The Story that Made Mark Twain Famous
Tuesday September 19, 6:30 p.m.

Kristin Krause will share the story behind her book "Last Voyage of the Hornet: The Story that Made Mark Twain Famous". "Last Voyage" tells the true story of Maine native Captain Josiah Mitchell whose clipper ship burned in the Pacific in 1866. The crew were forced to flee in small boats. The Hornet's crew traveled 4,300 miles to safety, a feat unequaled in maritime history. Through it all, Captain Mitchell and two passengers kept daily diaries.
When they reached Hawaii, a down and out young reporter named Samuel Clemens interviewed the crew. His story was telegraphed across the country and around the world launching his career as Mark Twain.

The author has three years experience as a crew member on tall ships. Kristin has sailed Maine windjammers, 12 meter racing yachts, and historical replicas not unlike the Hornet.
