Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York, hovered over a rare edition of Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” Monday night at the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.

The occasion was a reception for the opening of the library’s “Books That Shaped America” exhibition, which showcases 88 works of U.S. literature written between 1751 and 2002.
