Many readers shared stories of their first encounter with this important novel, and the affect it has had on their lives. The experiences discussed, and the breadth and depth of the impact felt, were as diverse as the disparate collection of readers listed. Along with the obvious considerations of race, class, and disability, were some rather personal and provocative conversations about wisdom, patience, humility, and the exploration of the existence of those whom either choose -- or, indeed, are condemned -- to live a life outside that which "society" considers to be the acceptable norm.
Thank you for celebrating Harper Lee’s beloved American novel with us! It was a privilege to share this reading experience with our community.
