The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Adventure Scrapbook

Tom Sawyer's adventures are more than just fun stories -- they help shape who Tom is, and who he becomes. So too do our own adventures make us who we are. We invite you to share with us your adventures for our scrapbook. Tell us about something you experienced that, like Tom's adventures, helped shape the person you are now. Maybe it's an actual adventure you went on, or a particular experience on a holiday. Maybe it's a friendship you have, or just a conversation you had once that made you look at something in a different way. All submissions will be posted on the Tom Sawyer Big Read website, www.tomsawyerbigread.com and a physical copy will be pinned to the white washed fence at the Lewis and Clark Library!
