To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Synopsis from GoodReads.com
The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.
Ok, so WHY am I reading this? Two great reasons:
- I originally chose the title back in September for Banned Books week but didn’t get to it.
- My favorite book store, Trappe Book Center, which hosts my favorite book club, chose the title for the January meeting.
This gives me double the reason to read the book, right? What’s that you say (cupping ear)? Didn’t I read that in High School or College? No. I don’t remember. But I did see the movie. Ok some of it. Ok I’ve seen the scene with Gregory Peck in it. But anyway, what a great time to catch up on this famous read, right?
My take so far…Like!
Take a moment and head over to BookJourney and see what others are reading this Monday. Go on…scoot!
