In a panel discussion to celebrate a new edition of [Huckleberry

Finn] which contains previously unpublished portions of the

manuscript, participants discussed the literary and historical

significance of the novel. They also debated its meanings on a

variety of levels, especially whether the racial slurs contained in

discussion, Bill Murray read a portion of the new additions. close
