Author: 
Mark Twain
Title: 
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Perhaps the best-loved nineteenth-century American novel, Mark Twain's tale of boyhood adventure overflows with comedy, warmth, and slapstick energy. It brings to life and array of irresistible characters—the awesomely self-confident Tom, his best buddy Huck Finn, indulgent Aunt Polly, and the lovely, beguiling Becky—as well as such unforgettable incidents as whitewashing a fence, swearing an oath in blood, and getting lost in a dark and labyrinthine cave. This novel is the 2010 selection for Alabama's state-wide The Big Read. Read more about Gurley Girls: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Author: 
Steven Levitt
Title: 
Freakonomics

Levitt and Stephen Dubner dub the material in this work "freakonomics" because Levitt uses analytical tools from economics to address a range of questions that, at first glance, might seem to be far removed from the discipline of the "dismal science." They consider questions such as how to determine if teachers are aiding in students' cheating on standardized tests, the impact of information asymmetry on the operation of the Ku Klux Klan, how the organizational structure of crack gangs resemble other businesses, and the influence of parents on child development.

Dr. Jennifer Garlen will present “Returns to Pemberley: Revisiting Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.” Her talk will cover the wide range of sequels to and revisions of Jane Austen's classic courtship novel, Pride and Prejudice. Modern writers and filmmakers have remade this tale of comedy and romance to reflect the ways in which love has and hasn't changed since the Regency Period. Why do we keep returning to Pemberley? Courtship rituals, class, family relations, Mr. Darcy, anyone? Dr. Garlen’s presentation at the Library’s English Authors Tea in January was a rousing success, so this Forum will give her fans another chance to enjoy the melding of English literature with a bit of pop culture.
