Huck Finn is an iconic fixture in America’s literary canon, and with Twain’s nuanced depiction of escaped slave Jim as a fully realized human, the novel presented a moral awakening for readers in 1885.

Why “Uncensored?”
Book-It has a goal of honoring an author’s intent and narrative. Huck Finn has traditionally been censored in language and content, and we want to let our audiences in the greater community know that the novel will be performed as written.
