Mark Twain’s youngest daughter, Jean, was diagnosed with epilepsy as a teenager and struggled not only with her illness but the stigma she faced as a young Victorian woman with epilepsy. Through January 2017, The Mark Twain House & Museum will be telling her story, and that of her sisters, in a special exhibition "In Their Father’s Image."


Between October 14th and November 30th, the Mark Twain House will be running a "Dollar At The Door Campaign" of which 50% of these proceeds will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut in recognition of National Epilepsy Awareness Month.


Visitors who give at the door can sign their name on a purple pumpkin-shaped paper that will be displayed with a text panel explaining the campaign.
