Celebrating To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Have you had the opportunity to read this timeless classic yet? I was actually fortunate enough to read To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time with my book club a couple of years ago. I actually wasn't even the only one in the group to be reading this book for the first time. If you haven't had the chance to read this book there is no better time than the present.
This year commemorates the 50 year anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird and you can join the celebration by reading the book, promoting it to all of your friends and family, or check out the calendar of events that Harper Collins has planned. If you think you may be interested in reading this with your book club like I did, you can find some inspiring discussion questions here.
So how about you? Have you read this great piece of literary fiction and if so how long ago did you read it? What is your lasting impression of the book? We keep a book club journal and the only note I had in there about this book was "I loved this book!" I think that sums up how many people feel about To Kill a Mockingbird.
