This Sunday, June 11th, is the 50th anniversary of the publication of To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee's American classic--a coming of age story set in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice. The book needs no introduction, and I don't think we have enough room on the blog to discuss everything we love, love, love about To Kill A Mockingbird. In fact, we've just published an entire book devoted to talking about Mockingbird's legacy. It's called Scout, Atticus, and Boo--and you might remember it from Nancy Pearl's interview with Mary Murphy at ALA.
If you're around this Sunday, tune in to NBC Nightly News for a segment on the book. Celebrate with us, by visiting the 50th Anniversary site, reading the book, re-reading the book, and/or attending an event near you.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or tweet your thoughts using #tkam as a hashtag.
Happy Anniversary, Harper!
