Subject: PCB Accessible World Special program Series, Presents a Discussion of huckleberry Finn, Sept. 28, 2010


News Wire: 

Some novels move slowly while others move at breakneck speed leaving little time for reflection. Many are filled with symbolism and meaning for creative-writing professors and academicians we may never see. Do you sometimes wonder what an author was really saying in that book you just read? Why does a novel have a certain structure? What is a particular author really saying? Is it what we think, or are there deeper implications about society and culture? Ira Fistelle has studied the works of Mark Twain in depth and believes The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to be The Great American Novel. As you listen to Ira speak, you will find meaning in this novel you never knew it had. Master storytellers, writers, and teachers take us into the creativity of others and make it ours.

For several months, we have had the stimulating experience of learning about Mark Twain, and what a revealing journey it has been. Our travels into the mind of Ira Fistelle and into the mind of Mark Twain's unforgettable Huckleberry Finn continues on September 28 at which time Ira will be concentrating on chapters 12 through 31. If you want to learn about how a classic novel evolves, or have the opportunity to experience it section by section, I promise you that and much more as you listen to Ira Fistelle. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is available in two versions on bookshare.org and on the download site through either of the two digital numbers below. The longer version has several chapters not part of the novel when first published. A short nls description appears before the download numbers.
