AuthorsLive presents bestselling author Richard Zacks

Join [email protected] on Tuesday, May 3 at 7 p.m. for an evening with Richard Zacks in the Library Meeting Room.  Zacks, the best selling author of Island of Vice and The Pirate Hunter, will discuss his latest book, Chasing the Last Laugh: Mark Twain’s Raucous and Redemptive Round-the-World Comedy Tour.

Chasing the Last Laugh is a rich and lively account of how Mark Twain’s late-life adventures abroad helped him recover from financial disaster and family tragedy—and revived his world-class sense of humor.

According to Kirkus Reviews, Chasing the Last Laugh is “… amusing, singular… a rollicking history perfect for Twain’s countless fans

Zacks’ books, from high brow to low brow, have sold more than half a million copies worldwide, and have been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Finnish.  His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Harper’s Magazine, and many other publications. He attended the University of Michigan, Universita Italiana per Stranieri in Perugia, and the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University. After a few years of newspaper work, he turned to book writing. He is dedicated to who, what, where and when, and occasionally why. Born in Savannah, Georgia, he now lives in New York City.
