Jean Louise French, our beloved "Scout," returns to her hometown as an adult, 26 years after the events of "To Kill a Mockingbird," and amidst the turmoil of the civil rights movements to learn some disturbing truths about her own family.
No matter what you might be hearing about this book, its release is historic. Moreover, I could venture to guess that what with the current discussions regarding race and the south, the loss of our "heroes" might not be a bad thing, it could be just what we need to discuss how deep rooted and disturbing racism is in our society.
Can't wait to hear what our customers have to say about this book when they've completed it! If anything, this book is bound to encourage some great conversations about writing, American history, the portrayal of race in literature, and social issues.
