Classic Monday: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

376 pages

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

This is a wonderfully deep and educational novel that teaches a lot about kindness, prejudice, and general human dignity. There is a lot to learn and take away from reading this just about being a better human being as a whole.
