SPECIAL: Sunday, July 11th at 2:00pm: An Anniversary Celebration of "To Kill A Mockingbird"


























To Kill a Mockingbird is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by American Author Harper Lee which was published 50 years ago on July 11th, 1960. The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explained the novel's impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism."

Join Caledonia Skytower, Elder Priestman & Gyro Muggins as they gather on the steps of Boo Radley's House to share an excerpt from this landmark novel live in Voice.
