To Kill a Mockingbird -Included in the Top 100 Books of All Time

To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition
It shouldn't be any surprise that Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is still a top seller. I first read it as a child (after seeing the movie of course) and was instantly enthralled not only by the characters but the story itself. As the characters & story became inseparable I was spellbound - BY A BOOK of all things!

To Kill a Mockingbird (Collector's Edition)If your only experience of  To Kill a Mockingbird has been in passing, please don't deny yourself the pleasure of meeting Atticus Finch, the strongly principled small souther town lawyer, his children, Scout and Jem, their reclusive mysterious neighbor Boo Radley, or Tom Robinson the black man accused of raping a drunken white farmers daughter. 

Harper Lee became a Pulitzer Prize winning author with To Kill a Mockingbird but never gave us another novel. Despite the Richmond Virginia school board wishing to ban the book in 1966 Presidents Lyndon Johnson and George W. Bush presented her with high honors.
