Last Thursday the members of the CPI Tino Grandío Reading Club held another session to talk about the last book we have read: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain. This time the meeting was for teachers and it took place in a cafeteria in Lugo. We talked about several aspects of the book:
- The historical period of the story.
- Mark Twain's ideas about life, literature, Don Quixote, and his childhood near river Mississippi.
- The differences between the characters: Huck, Tom Sawyer, Jim and Huck's father.
- Slavery in America and the changing ideas about it at the period.
- The river and its importance in the story.
- Similarities and differences with Don Quixote.
