Greetings from Hannibal, MO, Mark Twain's boyhood hometown, my theme for this year's AtoZ Challenge.
The Mark Twain Museum is home to fifteen Norman Rockwell paintings. The master painter meets the master storyteller.

Norman Rockwell adored Hannibal. His commissioned paintings depict scenes from Twain's novels: Tom Sawyer and the dead cat, Tom Sawyer and the schoolmaster flogging, Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence, Tom Sawyer sneaking out of a window. I feel like I've met Tom Sawyer before. Oh, that's right, I have two teenage boys. It really is worth the price of admission to view Rockwell's paintings.

Here is my claim to fame.
This past summer I had the privilege of being the first author invited to do a book signing at The Mark Twain Museum.
