Monrovia, California: Mark Twain Bench

Long dead literary giant Samuel Clemons (Mark Twain) relaxes on a park bench, reading one of his own books: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The bronze by artist Gary Price was installed near the library in 2003. Not so unique; there's another casting in Fairfield, CT.
