Description

Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read

Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

    I’d never read this book and so glad I finally did. The characters came to vivid life and so much to learn from the child’s mind. Beautiful yet sad funny and a book that will be added to my favorites of all time.
  • Why is it banned?

    Most inspiring! At almost 70 I finally picked up this book to read. Incredible the way Ms. Harper was able to hold a mirror up to my face so I would have to look inside myself.
