Dr Seger related a fast-paced, enlightening overview of the life of this beloved author. Her enthusiastic manner of presenting kept me engaged as did the fascinating facts about Mark Twain which I never knew. It was most interesting to hear about his development and focus as an author in light of concurrent historical happenings of the time. I did not know that he held so many different jobs and traveled so widely. Descriptions of the content of some major works was most helpful; gave me ideas for some future reading which I would not have considered. Enjoyed this seminar and learned a lot. The presenter's passion for her topic was evident.
I am a huge fan of Mark Twain and have read just about every thing he has written. I thought Dr. Seger did a good job of giving incite into Twain's feelings about /America, /and the world as well as his depression in later life. I shall sign up for more of her seminars.
Dr. Seger did an excellent job. She made the program so very interesting!! The time flew by. I didn’t know what to expect & learning more about Mark Twain & the experience was totally enjoyable. Dr. Seger is an excellent presenter.
This was a wonderful tour. While having learned a lot about Mark Twain many years ago as a young person, it was quite interesting and informative to revisit his work in light of current day social issues around racism and life in the United States. Dr. Seger is quite interesting and enthusiastic in her presentation, and I enjoyed it very much.
A fantastic seminar ... well presented and organized, thought-provoking and insightful. Maria gave us a wonderful overview of Mark Twain's life and writings. Very worthwhile!
