Book Discussion: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
Thursday, July 31, 2014
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Readers ages 10 and up are invited to join the Library Book Club for a discussion of this American classic.
"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is not merely a literary classic. It is part of the American imagination. More than any other work in our culture, it established America's vision of childhood. Mark Twain created two fictional boys, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, who still seem more real than most of the people we know. In a still puritanical nation, Twain reminded adults that children were not angels, but fellow human beings, and perhaps all the more lovable for their imperfections and bad grooming. Neither American literature nor America has ever been the same."
