"TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD" TURNS 50!

If you love Harper Lee's masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird, as much as I do, then this New York Times article is for you.

I used this book in my middle and high school classes for close to 30 years and every time I re-read it, I discovered something new. At first, I identified with the narrator, Scout Finch; after I had children, her father Atticus became my focus. The novel is a national treasure.

Happy 50th birthday, TKAM!
