7 Reasons Why You Should Read to Kill a Mockingbird ...


Last January, I organized an activity which basically outlines why you should read To Kill A Mockingbird. It was a very engaging discussion attended by literary majors, who haven't read the book written by American author Harper Lee. I was so surprised that for three hours I kept on talking about the book and the lessons it taught me. If you haven't read the book, here are the reasons why you should read To Kill A Mockingbird.

1. It's American Literature at Its Finest

Published in 1960 and awarded with a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1961, To Kill A Mockingbird is one book that discussed sensitive issues without making you feel uneasy because of its warmth-of-home atmosphere and the effortless humor evident in the children's conversations. The quality of the book is one of the best reasons why you should read To Kill a Mockingbird. It's my favorite book and one that introduced me to American Literature. It was adapted as a film in 1962 starring Gregory Peck. Yes, I'm saying you should watch the movie too.
