U.S. Postal Service Honors Great American Writer Mark Twain With New First Class Stamp
Stephen Lowman at the Washington Post reports on the new Mark Twain postal stamp.
The publication of Mark Twain’s 500,000 word autobiography last fall started literary tongues wagging again about the great author and satirist. Now, thanks to the U.S. Postal Service, they’ll be able to lick him, too.
Twain, otherwise known as Samuel Clemens, is being honored with a stamp in the Postal Service’s Literary Arts series. A ceremony marking the stamp’s release will be held in Hannibal, Mo., Twain’s boyhood home, on Saturday.
