As some of you are aware, our colleague in Mark Twain Studies, Hal Bush, Professor at St. Louis University, fell in January, suffered a traumatic brain injury, and has been in a coma ever since. Joe Csicsila (Associate Editor, The Mark Twain Annual), and Tracy Wuster (Executive Director, American Humor Studies Association) have recently established a GoFundMe account under the name of “Friends of Hal Bush.” Its purpose is to help offset Hal’s medical expenses and to assist his wife Hiroko during these difficult times. Members of the Circle Board will be contributing, and we encourage others to do the same.

With many thanks for your generosity, --Susan K. Harris, President, Mark Twain Circle of America
