This year's Center Point Historical Society/Friends of the Library Community Harvest Potluck will feature not only good old home cooking but also America's classic favorite young river rat--Huckleberry Finn.

Kathy Wilson, of Historical Perspectives in Marion, is back to do a free slide show program on Mark Twain's most acclaimed book, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."

The program coincides with the American Library Association's 2023 Banned Book Week. The theme this year is "Let Freedom Read."

Huck was published in this country in 1885 and "banned in Boston" about a month after it appeared. The book is considered Twain's greatest literary work and it still regularly appears on 21st century banned book lists.

The Huckleberry Finn program begins at 7 p.m. in the Center Point Library basement community room. Potluck supper is at 6. Table service and drink are provided. Please bring a dish or two to share, invite your neighbors, and renew your old acquaintance with that rascal Huck.
