To celebrate the occasion, I will be re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird because it's high time I did so. I will also be reading Scout, Atticus, and Boo as a companion piece.
I read TKAM in junior high - for fun. I was just browsing through the public library one day and found it. I thought Scout and Jem were kind of ornery, that Atticus was brave, and I remember being just outraged that someone would accuse someone else of a (made-up) crime just because that person was black (I'm pretty sure I've said elsewhere that I was a naive child; high school and college beat most of the naivete out of me). I was never assigned TKAM for school and I did watch the movie adaptation but for whatever reason I never got around to reading it again.
Yay, for books to read over again!
