New Executive Director of the Mark Twain House and Museum

Congratulations to Cindy Lovell, who has just been named Executive Director of the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, CT. Cindy has served as Executive Director of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal, MO since 2008, so she is no stranger to the Mark Twain world. She replaces Jeffrey Nichols, who moved on to a position at Poplar Grove in Virginia, a Thomas Jefferson home. Patti Philippon ably served as interim Executive Director since last summer. The Mark Twain Circle has a close working relationship with both the Hartford and Hannibal sites, and we look forward to working with Cindy in her new position.
