MINSTER — The Stallo Memorial Library, 196 E. Fourth St., Minster, will present a one-man performance about Mark Twain, Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is free.

“Mark Twain’s Guide to Diet, Exercise, Beauty, Fashion, Investment, Romance, Health and Happiness” will feature Mark Dawidziak, of the Largely Literary Theater Company.

Dawidziak and his wife, Sara Showman, founded the company, based in Akron, in 2002. A recognized Twain scholar, Dawidziak has lectured on the great American writer and has portrayed him in several states. The actor has been an adjunct professor at Kent State University since 2009. His stage roles include E.K. Hornbeck in “Inherit the Wind,” the Writer in Neil Simon’s “The Good Doctor” and the Wizard in “The Wizard of Oz.”

Largely Literary performs in theaters, museums, libraries, parks, schools and historic sites — anywhere people are interested in exploring great stories. The company also has partnered with the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read initiative to celebrate the works of Twain and renowned mystery writer Dashiell Hammett.

“Meet one of the most beloved authors of American literature as he brings a wealth of information, advice and humor about all things in life,” said Becky Beckman, Auglaize County Library branch assistant. “This hilarious new show is sure to get you laughing. Adults, high school students and middle school students will enjoy this free show.”
