To Kill A Mockingbird- August FHC Book Group Reading

Centered around Civil and Human Rights related readings, fiction and non-fiction, FHC book groups aim to engage community members in meaningful discussion.

Our August reading is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. August 28 in Ann Arbor and August 29 in Lansing (see details regarding book group locations, and book discounts below).

“The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.” – from amazon.com
