BATTLE OF WITS

A battle of wits… who is most important to American literature, William Shakespeare or Mark Twain?

“The human dimensions that Shakespeare gives his characters was pretty much a new concept in literature at that time.” ~Jonathan Richards.

“If we’re measuring Twain by American standards then I would say that he is definitely the superior character.” ~Lois Rudnick

MAX EVANS

Albuquerque author and actor Max Evans recounts his experience on the sets of iconic Hollywood westerns and how his books reflect life as a balance between tragedy and comedy.

“Isn’t life that way? I think we go around hiding how we are and what we really do and what’s happened to us every single day, maybe every single hour of our life.”
