THE HALLS WERE BUZZING at The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston on February 11, as actor Val Kilmer took the stage. Library Program Director Jonathon Eder opened the evening with, "We have a superstar in the house!" And to the audience's surprise, Kilmer began the program in character as Mark Twain—complete with wig, mustache, and Twain's signature white suit.

This was the second in a series of events the Library is hosting, called "Strength of Spirit—Engaging with Mary Baker Eddy 100 Years Later," in which writers, artists, and others examine the significance of Mary Baker Eddy's story in her time and ours. Kilmer's talk focused on his upcoming film project, which will portray the intersecting lives of Mark Twain and Mary Baker Eddy. Library Executive Manager and President Lesley Pitts confirmed this was the best-attended evening event the Library has held since its opening in September 2002.
