Beavertail Hill State Park will host a special program on Friday, June 26 on Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and the controversies that have surrounded the book. The program is set to begin at 8 p.m. at the state park’s amphitheater.
Guest speaker Michael Delaney, historian and independent scholar from Missoula, will share the story of the book’s banning in parts of the country and the reasons behind it. Delaney addresses the issues and then opens the program to discussion.
The program is free and open to the public. To attend, travel 26 miles east of Missoula on I-90 and take the Beavertail Hill Exit. Follow signs to the state park.
This presentation is part of the Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau program. Part of the funding for the program is provided by a legislative grant from Montana’s Cultural Trust and from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ “We the People” program.
