The library will hold a discussion of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird on Tuesday, June 30 at 7:00 PM. The discussion will be free and open to the public.
Published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize and become one of the most beloved of American novels. Its nostalgic yet clear-eyed portrait of life in the Depression-era South; its engagement with issues of class and, especially, race; and its unforgettable characters, especially the young narrator, Scout, and her father, the noble Atticus Finch, have made this book a contemporary classic. Few books can match its iconic stature.
The Haverhill Library Association is marking this literary milestone by scheduling discussions of both novels.
