Tillman Hill Adult Book Club: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

Location: Tillman D. Hill Public Library
Date: Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

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.
