The Mark Twain House and Museum has always been a go-to place for literary events of all shapes and sizes. This week's no different: Time Magazine humorist Joel Stein (pictured) appears in dialogue with local media personality Colin McEnroe to deliver this year's Pen Warmed Up in Hell conversation on Thursday. Stein is known for his hilarious, offbeat Time column, in which he deals with the issues of the day. His new book, Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity, kicks off with a man-panic induced by learning his son's gender, and progresses from there into what it means to be a dude and a dad. (It's funny, of course.)
