The Mark Twain House & Museum will present an educational workshop for teachers, "Huckleberry Finn in Post-Reconstruction America: Mark Twain's Hartford Years, 1871-1891," that will examine the cultural and historical significance of Mark Twain, his writings and his era. The workshop will provide historical context for Twain's masterpiece, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and will use Twain's life, works and landmark Hartford home, as tools for examining the post-Reconstruction period of American history. The museum will offer two week-long sessions of the workshop during July 2009; each session will accommodate forty teachers.
