Uncle Tom's Cabin is March Book Group Discussion

The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and The Mark Twain House & Museum are partnering on a 21st-century book club to consider all things Twain, Stowe and the topics that had Nook Farm buzzing during the Victorian Era that still captivate us today – politics, social issues, humor, adventure, romance, literature and more.

This exciting “First Thursday” series continues March 4. Refreshments will be offered starting at 5 pm; the facilitated discussion will begin at 5:30 and end at 6:30. The museums will alternate hosting the Book Club. Admission is free, thanks to a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council, and free parking is available at each of the museums.
