    Wednesday, May 30
    Mark Twain House & Museum
    351 Farmington Avenue, Hartford
    5:30-7:00pm


    Leading independent Twain scholar Kevin Mac Donnell studies Twain’s exploration of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, a pacifist denomination that had been brutally persecuted in America, which in turn prepared him at that moment to hear the human voice of a race that had also been brutally persecuted. If the voice of Jim and others of his race reverberate in the voice of Huck Finn, it can come as no surprise that the tenets of Quakerism reverberate in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as well.
