    If your bookshelves are filled with the work of Jodi Picoult, John Grisham and David Baldacci, then a Mark Twain House event tonight will be like a dream come true.

    The three best-selling novelists will be coming together to talk about writing, the publishing industry, the fate of the book and, of course, about Mark Twain.

    Whether the writers are exploring moral and ethical issues, as Picoult does in her novels, or weaving tales of political or legal intrigue, as Grisham and Baldacci do, they have drawn strength from Twain, according to the Mark Twain House & Museum.

    The event is called “Mark My Words” and it takes place on Wednesday at 8 p.m. at Yale University’s Woolsey Hall in New Haven.

    Tickets range from $25 to $65 and all proceeds support the programs of The Mark Twain House & Museum.

    You can purchase tickets at or by calling 800-228-6622. Woolsey Hall is at 500 College St. (at Grove), New Haven, Connecticut. Additional information is available at the Mark Twain House Web site.
