While this announcement went out over a blind user's group, everyone is welcome to join in-


On Tuesday, August 10, Ira Fistelle will present his next in a series of discussions of the novels of Mark Twain. This time, his presentation will feature

the novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin. Published in 1885, this remains one of Mark Twain's most famous works and is still widely read today.


Ira Fistelle is exciting! His love of all things written by Mark Twain, along with his literary background and past work as an educator puts him in a unique

position to speak of both Samuel Clemens the man as well as Mark Twain the writer.  


For a new perspective you never thought you would hear, I invite you to this thought provoking discussion of a man important in his time and of a novel

that reaches through time to  touch  our hearts and minds as few novels do.
