Dawidziak Marking the trail again
PD and former BJ entertainment critic Mark Dawidziak is returning to one of his haunts Feb. 2 – The Center for Mark Twain Studies.
“Hoping for clear weather on Feb. 2, when I'll be packing up the white suit and heading for Elmira to help celebrate the Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Program with a performance for the Center for Mark Twain Studies. Proceeds from sales of the gold and silver coins go to the four corners of Mark Twain research: the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, Connecticut; the Mark Twain Papers at the University of California, Berkeley; the Center for Mark Twain Studies in Elmira, New York; and the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal, Missouri.
Mark has performed at the Hartford Twain site.
He collected and edited one of many books, “Mark Twain's Guide to Diet, Exercise, Beauty, Fashion, Investment, Romance, Health and Happiness.”He also plays Twain at the drop of an unlit cigar in Northeast Ohio and around the country. He gives Hal Holbrook a run for his money when it comes to Twain impersonation.
