Is To Kill a Mockingbird relevant and meaningful in 21st Century America?Thursday March 5, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
This program is part of the One Book, One Wallingford series.
You may have read the book in high school or seen the unforgettable film, but like the gifts Boo Radley gives to Jem and Scout, the memories of the novel may be hidden away, unexamined over the years.
We’ll start with a basic refresher. Next, we’ll take a closer look at Lee’s themes and literary style. Then we’ll place Mockingbird in historical, social, and critical context, and engage in conversation about its place in the 21st century.
Join Susan Gomes, former Lyman Hall English teacher, for a workshop designed to dust off the memories and reexamine what PBS proclaims is “America’s Best-Loved Novel.”
No registration required.
