Classics Book Club-Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur’s Court

Join us May 23rd at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain

Connecticut Yankee

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court is one of Mark Twain’s most ambitious and well-known novels, first published in 1889. Main character Hank Morgan is a 19th Century businessman who is transported back in time to King Arthur’s court where he meets legendary figures such as King Arthur and Merlin. Both for his own profit and to save his life, Morgan utilizes his knowledge of the future to amaze the locals. Many scholars cite this novel as an early pioneer in the time travel genre. Brimming with social commentary, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court is as much of a literary delight as it is a time travel adventure to medieval times.

Ask at the desk for a copy of this classic or email baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve a copy today! And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
6/27/17: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
