Twainiac Program with Capital Preparatory Magnet School
Sophomores from Hartford’s Capital Preparatory Magnet School participate in the annual “Twainiac Program,” which has been generously supported by the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation. The students read Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, using the Museum’s exhibitions, library, and resources. This experience culminates in students writing individual essays that address the question “What, if anything, can we learn about eliminating racism through Mark Twain and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?”Visit the Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest's website to learn more
