☁ “Before this bookclub meet, my last reading of Huck Finn was as a child and left only happy memories. With this re-read all that stood out to me was the blatant racism! So I was pleased to learn Twain was highlighting an issue of the time, not expressing his own thoughts, and I was then able to appreciate the mix of humour and seriousness, and able to reconnect with the story.” – Rachel
