Write Out Loud, an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud for a live audience - announces the 11th Annual "TwainFest." This year, "TwainFest" will be virtual - with new content being shared via email each day from August 1-16, and the daily video updates added to the Write Out Loud website.

"TwainFest," now a tradition for many San Diego families, is historically an all-day free festival in Old Town San Diego celebrating Mark Twain and the literature and culture of 19th Century America. From August 1-16, our patrons, and anyone who signs up, will receive free daily emails connecting them to our TwainFest Artists who have recorded their performances of literature at home - or on site at historical locations in the city.
