Warren Brown is Mark Twain in
CATCH THE TWAIN!!!
Give a 10$ donation and get a cd of CATCH THE TWAIN

Join us in an engaging evening of an uproariously authentic characterization of Mark Twain's stories and lecture series guaranteed to entertain audiences.
A first-person Chautauqua-style audience question and answer session is included with each program. The program promotes an appreciation for humanity, education, and literacy in a way that is humorous and inspirational, and historically amusing.
Warren Brown, a Mark Twain scholar, received the Studs Terkel Humanities Service Award for his Chautauqua-style portrayal of Samuel Clemens, "bridging the lessons of history with the demands of contemporary living." Mr. Brown's program, Catch the Twain, is endorsed by the Illinois Humanities Council, the Illinois Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Warren says he struggled all through school, "The hardest eight years of my life...was 1st grade." Nevertheless, Warren has a degree from the University of Illinois

Special Presentation and discussion to follow:
Revolution Newspaper...
and Making Revolution
  for Real
 
We have a strategy - and our newspaper is, as "The Revolution We


"the foundation, guideline, and organizational scaffolding for [the] whole process" of carrying out that strategy. This is the paper that cuts to the bone to tell you WHY things are happening... to show you HOW it doesn't have to be this way... and to give you the ways to ACT to change it. It is a call to action and a means of struggle. It is, and has to be much more, the scaffolding on which this movement is built, where those who are getting into it and following it can wrangle in its pages and on its website with how we can better build this movement. It is a guideline where today thousands, but soon tens of thousands and eventually millions, all over the place, stay connected and learn to act in a powerful and united way. It is the foundation where those who read it learn about the larger goals of revolution and communism and come to see the ways in which the struggles of today are connected to those larger goals... where they come to grasp the scientific communist outlook through its application to all the many particular events and outrages and developments in society... and where they get organizationally linked up to this revolution.”
