I did not get around to reading To Kill a Mockingbird this month for the Reading to Know Bookclub. However, I did want to share a few pictures I took of TKM-related “stuff” when we took a field trip to the Alabama Archives in Montgomery back in August. I’ve been meaning for oh, about four months now to share pictures from that trip because it was so good, but for now these few pictures will have to do.
This movie poster caught my eye in the children’s hands-on room in the Archives. I just love Gregory Peck as Atticus, don’t you?
At the entrance and exit to the Alabama Voices portion of the Archives, there is this really neat wall of pictures of famous Alabamians. Do you see Harper Lee?
There she is!
We have friends who recently moved to Monroeville. Maybe now we’ll actually get down there for a visit! 🙂
Harper Lee’s sister, Alice Lee, passed away last month at the age of 103. This article about her by Alabama historian Wayne Flynt is particularly touching.
If you’re interested in Harper Lee’s life and how she came to write her one-and-only novel, I recommend Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee by Charles J. Shields.
In this post I link up quite a few really neat To Kill a Mockingbird resources.
