Over the years, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned a place among the classic works of American literature. It is fitting that Harper Lee's book be the subject of this worthy project sponsored by the Duluth Public Library.
The purpose of this project is to encourage as many Duluthians and area residents as possible to read the same book at the same time, to promote discussion on a broad basis. Whether you read To Kill a Mockingbird as a young student, or are just now reading this literary classic, the possibilities for thought-provoking discussion are many and varied.
In today's fast-paced world, we too often lose sight of the power of the written word. Family time spent in discussing classic books is a valuable tool, not only for improving appreciation of literature, but also for increasing the time families spend together.
I urge you to take advantage of
this unique opportunity. You can find copies of the book at the
Duluth Public Library, our local bookstores or perhaps even right
on your home bookshelf. No matter how you read and discuss this
book, I am sure you will find the experience to be worthwhile
