As school starts up again, I started thinking about books (What? I can’t help it. I love books) and what students are going to be assigned to read this year. Some of them can be a struggle to finish (believe me, I remember) but not all of them are dry dusty old tomes that you’ll never pick up again. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee grabbed me the first time I read it in school, and, for a girl who was constantly reading anyway, finding a book that grabbed my attention and got included on the required reading list was a bit of a revelation. As with much of the required school reading, we watched the movie starring Gregory Peck after we finished reading the book. This is a story I’ve never forgotten, and will read again every time I come across my battered paperback copy. It always made me a little sad that I never got to read anything else by Harper Lee, so this article on 4 Awesome Things Harper Lee Did After Mockingbird really caught my interest. Have you read it? What did you think?
