To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
A true American classic, Harper Lee’s famous novel about a young girl growing up in the South during the Depression is both heartwarming and apt nearly a century after its publication. This book perfectly captured life in the South with a cast of characters now beloved to readers everywhere. Scout’s lessons become the reader’s lessons as we learn from Atticus Finch about morality. To Kill a Mockingbird explores themes still relevant in today’s world, from race to isolation to the danger of rumors and stereotypes.
