50th Anniversary of the novel, To Kill A Mockingbird

From a Library Journal review..."Harper Lee's coming-of-age classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, tells the story of six-year-old Scout Finch, her older brother Jem, and their father, Atticus, a small-town Alabama lawyer assigned to defend Tom Robinson, a black man falsely accused of rape. The reaction of the town, the dignity of Robinson, and the character of their father affect both children as they navigate the path from childhood innocence to adult understanding".

The Libraries have several editions of the novel as well as the award winning, 1962 film starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch.
