Our next festival is:

The Twain Shall Meet

Friday Oct 9th, 2020

Hannibal Free Public Library announced the reschedule of “The Twain Shall Meet Trivia Contest.”  The event will now take place on Friday, October 9th, beginning at 6:00 p.m.  This is the finale event for “The Twain Shall Meet” program series.  Teams have been encouraged to participate by reading the selected titles, becoming more familiar with Hannibal lore about Twain, attending the presentations, and accepting that no fact is too big or too small to be included in the contest.  Piloted by the Library’s own “Steamboat Sadie,” there will be ten rounds of ten questions each.  Tie-breaker questions will be used, if necessary, and prizes will be awarded to the winning team.

The cave was made famous by the author Mark Twain. Mark Twain grew up in Hannibal and had spent much of his childhood playing in the cave near his home. His memory of the cave stayed with him into adulthood and eventually became immortalized in his writings.

The frame house known as the Mark Twain Boyhood Home was constructed around 1843 or 1844. The John Marshall Clemens family lived here until leaving town in 1853. Following their departure, this became a rental property.
