Moralists in Disguise
What do Mark Twain and Rod Serling have in common? Join us for a fascinating online program to find out!

"Moralists in Disguise" explores the many intriguing personal and professional parallels between Mark Twain and Rod Serling, two authors with profound connections to both Ohio and upstate New York. Both writers lived and worked in Cincinnati as young men. Both writers would retreat to upstate New York each summer with their families – Twain to Quarry Farm in Elmira, Serling to a cabin on Cayuga Lake. Both were internationally recognized celebrities (rare for a writer). But those are just a few of the many fascinating points of comparison linking these two iconic American writers. Most importantly, each became master of form he used to disguise moral lessons -- humor for Twain and fantasy for Serling.
