To Kill a Mockingbird turns 50!
The classic is getting older, but not showing its age! Along with giving it a read, I have two friends who have written related books. IN SEARCH OF MOCKINGBIRD by Loretta Ellsworth and UP CLOSE: HARPER LEE by Kerry Madden.
Along with these, Monroeville, Alabama (where the book is set and where Harper Lee grew up) will have an official celebration July 8-11. Learn more at www.tokillamockingbird.com.
