George Frein will portray author Mark Twain in a Chautauqua-style presentation, “Twain on Humor,” at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 14, at Prairie Village Museum, Rugby. The presentation is one of two Prairie Talks events planned at Prairie Village Museum this season. The talk and museum admission are free. Refreshments will be served following the program. Donations are welcome to help defray expenses. As Mark Twain, Frein will talk about the profession and practice of humor. Audience members are encouraged to listen with what Samuel Coleridge called “a willing suspension of disbelief.” Following the monologue, audience members will have a chance to ask Twain questions and express their own opinions about humor. And in the third part of the program, Frein will offer insight and answer questions as a Twain expert and scholar. Frein, who taught in the University of North Dakota department of Philosophy and Religion for 29 years, developed his first Chautauqua presentation in 1986. In addition to Twain, Frein has several historical characters in his repertoire, including historian Henry Adams, novelist Herman Melville, and German author Erich Maria Remarque, whom he portrayed in a Prairie Talks presentation last fall. Frein lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with his wife, Shelly Matthews. Prairie Talks is sponsored by the North Dakota Humanities Council, with support from Prairie Village Museum. Founded by Rugby-area native Kristi Rendahl in 2012, Prairie Talks speakers have included journalists, authors, historians, human rights advocates, Native American leaders, public health advocates, and artists.
