A Pen Warmed Up in Hell

Presented by The Mark Twain House & Museum

Love him or hate him, one cannot deny that Academy Award-winning documentarian Michael Moore inspires passionate feelings in Americans.  Moore is the creator of the most successful documentary films of all time including Roger and Me, the Oscar-winning Bowling for Columbine, the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or-winner Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko and Capitalism, A Love Story.   An Emmy Award-winner for his television series The Awful Truth, he is also a #1 New York Times bestselling author.  His latest book Here Comes Trouble is a memoir filled with his trademark humor, wit and provocative politics.  Derided by many as un-American and similarly hailed by others as an American hero, Moore certainly subscribes to Mark Twain’s maxim, “Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.”
