Book Club - To Kill A Mockingbird

Culture Club
Date: Monday, 12 November 2018 19:00

Venue: The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre

For November’s book club we’ll be discussing Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Published in 1960, it has become a classic of modern American literature.

Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition.

If you’ve not been to one of our book clubs before, we’ll have at least one copy of the book on our table to help you find us.
