Clemens Circle Benefits

Please note that we will be refreshing our benefits for premier memberships starting January 2014.

Special Events

The past few years have been as star-studded as any we've had here at the Twain House - filmmakers like Spike Lee have spoken; writers from Rolling Stone, The New York Times and National Public Radio have discussed the state of literature and politics; and comedians such as Paula Poundstone made us laugh as much as Twain might have in his own time. As a Clemens Circle Donor you will get advance notice of special events as well as access to discounts or pre-sale information.

Advance Invitations

Clemens Circle donors get advanced notice of special social and cultural events sponsored by The Mark Twain House & Museum including gallery openings, restoration unveilings, wine tastings, and more.

Reduced Rates

From Hal Holbrook in "Mark Twain Tonight" to Clemens Lectures by Wally Lamb and other best-selling authors, our programs are unmatched in variety and verve. The spirit of Mark Twain lives on in the readings, lectures, parties, ghost tours, concerts, theatrical productions, and everything else we cook up over the course of the year. Clemens Circle donors get a discount on every single special event we offer.
