Mark Twain loved cats! He once said, "I simply can't resist a cat, particularly a purring one."   Mark Dawidziak is a journalism graduate of George Washington University. He has worked as a theater, film and television critic since 1979, serving as the television critic at the Cleveland Plain Dealer since 1999. Co-founder of the Largely Literary Theater Company, he has been portraying Mark Twain on stage for more than 35 years. As a Twain scholar, Dawidziak explores the writer's lifelong devotion to cats through stories, excerpts and quotes. He will illuminate a little-known side of this famous writer's life that will appeal to both Twain and ailurophiles alike.   Avoid pussyfooting around! Pounce on the opportunity to hear this purrfectly fascinating presentation about Twain's love affair with felines.
