COMMUNITY EVENT - Union County Book Club

New Union County book club studies Huck Finn

Carole Halvorson announces the "Books You Should Have Read in School, but missed" book club, beginning July 27, 6 p.m. at the Bohenkamp/Community Workshop Bldg in La Grande.  The Workshop is located at 1301 Adams Ave, La Grande, and the book club is open to all.

The first book to be discussed is Mark Twain's classic 
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  This book has been widely discussed and sometimes censored for its frank and uncomfortable treatment of race and status in our nation's recent past. 

Retired educator Jerry Sebestyen will lead an open discussion in which our history and themes of class and race can be explored and deliberated. A study guide is available before the discussion date upon request. Participants can buy a copy of Huck Finn at Sunflower Books or Earth 'n Book in downtown La Grande if they do not have a copy on their shelf. Local libraries are another option.

For more information, a copy of the study guide or to suggest future "Books You Should Have Read in School,” contact Carole at
