Atticus, Jem & Scout

Atticus, Jem & Scout. I don't even have to mention Boo Radley and I'm sure you already know what I'm talking about. The characters from Harper Lee's literary masterpiece are etched into our collective consciousness and seem as real to me as my friends and family. Today is the 50th anniversary of the publication of "To Kill a Mockingbird".
This is the version we have in our home library and I re-read it this spring. Have you read it lately? Have you watched the movie? It's one of those rare cases where the movie is as good as the book, thanks to Gregory Peck and the way he became Atticus Finch.

Thank you to Katie who blogs at The Dundee Writer for tipping me off about this event!


  1. This is my edition, also. Except mine is a little bit up by the cat. Not sure when that happened...

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love it! I read the same edition way back in grade 10. CBC had a great discussion about the relevance of TKAMB was a fabulous discussion.
