On Wednesday, February 26, the Farmington Libraries will host a lecture entitled, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: An American Story.” This event will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Farmington Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive.
Craig Hotchkiss, Educational Program Manager at the Mark Twain House and Museum, will lecture and lead an in-depth discussion on "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." This is not exactly a book talk—this presentation reaffirms the importance of Mark Twain’s masterpiece by placing it within the context of the larger history of race relations in America from slavery to the modern Civil Rights Movement. It also demonstrates how the book continues to be a catalyst for positive social change. This program is in celebration of Black History Month.
