Mockingbird turns 50
While I subscribe to Glamour and Allure and Marie Claire, he brings me his copies of National Geographic and Smithsonian.
So it was that I happened upon a fascinating article on Harper Lee on the occasion of the 50th (!?) anniversary of the publication of "To Kill a Mockingbird."
It tops a list of the best books of the 1960s. A decade that yielded a lot of my favorites. And a lot of books that happen to be on the list of choices my daughter brought home for summer reading, too.
Mockingbird is proof that a good story and exceptional writing are timeless.
Think I'll put it on my summer reading list!
