About To Kill a Mockingbird 

Harper Lee’s story of racial injustice and childhood innocence has left a lasting impact on the world, creating conversations that are still relevant today. The book has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide. In 2020, the book celebrated its 60th anniversary.

To Kill a Mockingbird, which takes place in 1934 in Maycomb, Alabama, introduced readers to some of American literature's most unforgettable characters, including lawyer Atticus Finch, the wrongly accused Tom Robinson, Scout Finch, her brother Jem, their housekeeper Calpurnia, and reclusive Arthur "Boo" Radley. This story, its characters, and its portrayal of small-town America have contributed to, and continue to inspire, conversation and change throughout the past 60 years and for every generation that follows.

To Kill a Mockingbird synopsis 

In the fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama, racism is rife. When lawyer Atticus Finch is tasked with defending Tom Robinson, a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman, Finch knows that although there is little hope of winning, he must do all that he can to prove his innocence. A tale beyond its years, To Kill a Mockingbird is filled with valuable life lessons of patience, empathy and compassion, portrayed through a slightly updated new version of Finch that may not exist within the novel.
