Sunday is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winner To Kill a Mockingbird. Just think: Scout would be about 83 now, and Jem about 87. We won't talk about Atticus.
On Classics Rock! we posted some songs that were inspired by the novel, from the likes of Bruce Hornsby, Ra Ra Riot, and the Noisettes (along with a shout-out to the Boo Radleys), and were rewarded for our efforts with a nice mention in the publishing enewsletter Shelf Awareness. Thanks!
"Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." Attaboy, Atticus.
