Mark Twain Award Goes to Stephen Graham Jones
The 2021 Mark Twain American Voice in Literature Award will be presented to author Stephen Graham Jones for his novel The Only Good Indians. Jones will receive the award at a live, in-person event at The Mark Twain Museum Center, with special guest David Baldacci, on December 1.
