Mockingbird Grows Up: Rereading Harper Lee Since Watchman
Tuesday, March 16, 2021 | 6:00 PM | Zoom
Join editors Cheli Reutter and Jonathan S. Cullick for a talk and Q&A discussion on their book, Mockingbird Grows Up: Re-Reading Harper Lee Since Go Set a Watchman Came Out (UT Press, 2020). Cullick and Reutter will discuss the value of reading, teaching, and engaging in community conversations about Harper Lee’s classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, and her hidden gem, Go Set a Watchman. They will trace the provenance of the novels, consider the joy, inspiration and harm of To Kill a Mockingbird, and propose new ways for teachers, students, and community readers to approach Harper Lee in the era of Black Lives Matter. Ultimately, they conclude that studying both of Harper Lee’s works is timely. Register Here
