To Kill a Mockingbird is the first novel written Harper Lee of Monroeville, Alabama. Published in 1960, it became an immediate best-seller and was awarded the prestigious, Pulitzer Prize in 1961. Its primary themes are racial and class prejudice. The story is told by young Scout Finch, who lives with her father Atticus, a lawyer, and her older brother Jem, in the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama.
The people in Maycomb are dealing with some serious social issues. A young black man has been accused of raping a white girl. Still taboo today, it was an act considered especially egregious in the Deep South of the 1930s. As the children of Atticus Finch, appointed to defend the accused, Scout and Jem observe and experience much of the fallout of the man’s trial. They learn that sometimes people aren’t always what they seem. They also learn that sometimes people are exactly who they seem to be. Perhaps most importantly, they learn that heroes can come in the most unexpected forms.
More than 50 years after its original publication, To Kill a Mockingbird continues to be embraced as a piece of classic literature, and it is still regularly read in schools throughout the United States and beyond.
“Mockingbird still says what it has to say; it has managed to survive the years without preamble.” - Harper Lee, from the Foreword of the 35th Anniversary Edition of To Kill a Mockingbird.

I'm going to say that I just received my "slipcase edition" of To Kill A Mockingbird today.
It looks exactly like the online picture. I saw your Ol' Curiosities embossed stamp inside the book when I was showing it to my Monday pal (we kick off the week at the gym and enjoy a lunch after the workout which defeats any weight loss). How elegant the book and case are. All is quality workmanship which is so nice for this all American classic. I could see my pal's appreciation immediately.
Of course I had to tell her you had 4 copies left when I ordered. So, you must alert me when you've replenished this so I can relay that information.
I don't know how but she seemed totally unaware of Go Set A Watchman. I told her all about it. She has a computer but seldom is on other than for solitaire. That may change.
Eventually I'll reread TKAM although I have retained the story all these years and GSAW will take priority.
I have always enjoyed these books illustrating the integrity of Southerners contrary to what is often depicted in the media. So, kudos to Ms. Lee who took such a heroic step in writing this tale.
Please relay to Ms. Lee that we love her and her writing. And, yes, I'd love an autograph (and I know I'm not alone on that). Guess that'll go on my bucket list.
I must say you have an excellent shipping department. The product was packed for shipping protection. No damage. That order must have been immediately processed. Thank you!
Right now, I'm thinking of excuses to not start rereading at this time (11:45 PM) because I will not stop until I've finished.
