We’re re-visiting a classic this month with To Kill a Mockingbird.
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.
Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

Ordering today! So glad to re-visit this book, because it’s been a loooong time.
I ordered my copy too. 🙂
Yay! I guess back in the day I had a school copy, because I didn’t actually have a copy here in my library. It’s been that long!
One of my top 5 favorite books. Just have to figure out which shelf I stuck this one on the last time I rearranged shelves.
