Mark Twain book returned to shelves at Charlton library

News Telegram – “It took 105 years, but the Charlton Public Library has finally made things right with Mark Twain. With a unanimous vote Tuesday night, the library board of trustees put “Eve’s Diary” back in circulation, reversing the board’s 1906 decision to ban the author’s 1905 short story. “It was more of a symbolic gesture,” said Richard Whitehead, the library trustee who shepherded the work, written in the style of a diary kept by Eve — yes, that Eve — back on to the shelves, in a telephone interview yesterday. “Certainly the book could have gone back in circulation earlier.”
