dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP3 file: "InterVU - Podcasts - Listen: Vanderbilt Twain exhibit pays tribute to popular American author." By Vanderbilt University. Ann Marie Deer Owens speaks to Kathy Smith, Associate Director of Special Collections and University Archives at the Jean and Alexander Heard Library of Vanderbilt, about Vanderbilt's participation in Nashville's citywide "Twain and Twang" celebration of Mark Twain (on the 175th anniversary of his birth and the 100th of his death). Special Collections is presenting an exhibit called "Mark Twain: An American Original." The exhibit draws from the large collection of Twain first editions and other books given to the library by Vanderbilt professor Marc H. Hollender, but other books, letters and items of memorabilia are borrowed from Twain's boyhood home in Hannibal, Mo., and from San Diego State University. Smith discusses Twain as an author, a journalist and a man, as well as his struggles against copyright infringement.en
