Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Thursday, October 17, 2019

11:00 am


In a one-hour talk, including Q & A, Joan Baum will explore the content
and controversy surrounding this one-time staple of school readings
lists, a book Ernest Hemingway declared the source of “all modern
American literature” and “the best book we’ve had.” But is Huck Finn too
dated or “politically incorrect?” Set in the antebellum Midwest and
South, the novel was published in the wake of Reconstruction, 20 years
before Thomas Dixon’s The Clansman, which gave rise to D.W. Griffith’s
film Birth of a Nation. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.
