- jennperrenErnest Hemingway is my favorite, but I would have to say that, overall, Mark Twain was the greatest American author. I just finished reading Tom Sawyer to my sons and they loved it.
- amhistorymuseum@alexmcclanahan4 Teehee. We get a lot of "Justin Bieber" answers, regardless of the question. :)
- amhistorymuseum@jennperrin0114 Great picks. Glad to hear your sons are digging the classics! @wampusreynolds yes, yes, and yes.
