Connecting with To Kill a Mockingbird

Welcome to the connection portal for To Kill a Mockingbird!

I don't know about you, but before this year, I had zero experience with To Kill a Mockingbird. It seems a lot of people were required to read it in high school, but I was not one of them. How about you?

I had never seen the movie, either - which, by the way, is coming back to theaters in 2022. You can see if it will be at a theater near you here.

All this to say that I was a blank slate save for the fact that I grew up in the 70s in Alabama, so I knew people that acted and thought like the southerners in the novel because they were my grandparents' generation and the 1970s were not that far removed from when the novel was first published in 1960.

Before you begin

One of our Monthly Book Box Members shared this photo and it reminded me of the packaging inside the To Kill a Mockingbird Book Box. Did you enjoy the brown "bird's nest" cradling the novel treasure inside this book box?
