Description:
 Each year "Graveyard Shift: Nocturnal Ghost Tours of the Twain House" is hosted at Mark Twain's Hartford home. Twain’s ghost has become a cultural commodity, bought and sold to affirm an American history and identity. But what were the famous author's feelings on ghosts? Twain was like many of his fellow Americans after the Civil War: unable to believe in a transcendent, all-powerful divinity and longing to find evidence for one at the same time. LeMoyne's Ann Ryan presents "Haunting Mark Twain".

Presenter: Cindy Hibbert
