Last week my most favorite book of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird, celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
I loved Scout, I wanted to be Scout, and I pretty much was Scout as a little girl. Nothing frilly for me thank you, I would rather swing on a tire, run barefoot around our farm, try to hang with my older brothers, and wear overalls instead of a dress. Not to mention her cool name.
I am also intrigued by Harper Lee and her anti-spotlight life, I find it quite likable. There is a new documentary available on DVD called Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird which I just ordered from here. Click on the trailer below for a preview:
Here's a link to a quiz at Garden & Gun about the book. It was fun, I only got 5 right answers though, waw, waw, waw.....(*Note: Garden & Gun is my new favorite magazine, thanks January I found it on your FB page!)
I think I'll go find my copy of To Kill a Mockingbird and be 10 again.
