Roughing It Reimagined: A Musical Hands-On History Workshop"

This program combines music and literature in a new twist on our popular Hands-On History Workshops. Judy Cook, an internationally touring folk musician, will join AAS staff in using Mark Twain’s classic tale of the West Roughing It as inspiration for exploring the collections and music related to the era.

Covering the years 1861 to 1867, Roughing It is a semi-autobiographical, humorous work with stories about mining, real estate speculation, and visits to Western landmarks.

The intertwining of music, historical documents, and excerpts from the book will create a unique opportunity to revisit the story for those who have read it and a rousing introduction to it for those who have not!
