"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember its a sin to kill a mockingbird." A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lees classic novel-- a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.
The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice, but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s.
One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie.
Recently, librarians across the country gave the book the highest of honors by voting it the best novel of the century (Library Journal).
