This literary classic is fifty years old and it happens to be one of David's assigned literature books this year so I have had my nose in it for the past week or so. Can you believe that I never read this in school? It was one option on a list of possibilities in Sophomore English. At the time, I picked "The Chosen", which is also excellent by the way. I really can't believe how much utter crud we read in those honors English classes when we should have been assigned things like this. That is another post though.
David will read it toward the end of our school year and then we will watch the movie together. I am really excited about the movie, but holding off until I can see it with him.
If you have never read To Kill a Mockingbird, or if it is a distant memory from High School, take this time to reacquaint yourself with a classic as it turns fifty.
