To Kill A Mockingbird 50 Years Later

Today marks 50 years since the publication of Harper Lee's novel To Kill A Mockingbird.

I read this book in high school. I fell in love with the characters, especially Atticus Finch. Who wouldn't? A father who always said/did the right thing, was fair, and was generally a good man. An archetypal character. Even today the character of Atticus Finch resonates, although most people think of Gregory Peck in the role. People don't write characters like that anymore.

So here's to you, Harper Lee. You did a good thing.
