The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (published 1876) is a very well-known and popular story concerning American youth. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River. One of the most famous incidents in the book describes how Tom persuades his friends to do a boring, hateful chore for him: whitewashing (i.e., painting) a fence. This was the first novel to be written on a typewriter. (Summary from Wikipedia)

"Specialis Revelio" is the spell to reveal an object’s hidden secrets or magical properties, and that’s exactly what we do on this podcast. We’ll be starting at the beginning of the series and taking you through chapter by chapter, making connections with later books and revealing hidden things we haven’t discovered yet. We’ll also be uncovering some questions we never thought to ask. I’d like to note that this podcast is meant for diehard fans rather than brand new readers. Even though we'll be going chapter by chapter, we won’t be touching on everything that happens since most listeners will have read the books multiple times. There will also be spoilers galore. We’ll mostly be focusing on connections between later books, new findings and questions for discussion, news and a little trivia for fun!
