Monday Night Fiction to Discuss ‘Mockingbird’

"To Kill a Mockingbird" cover

Schreiner University professor Lydia Kualapai will host a discussion of Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” at the first Monday Night Fiction event of the 2007-08 academic year at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 10, in the Scarle Phillips room of Logan Library on Schreiner campus.

Lee’s story of a young woman coming of age in the American south was published in 1960. It focuses on the Finch family, especially on Atticus Finch, a lawyer and his daughter Jean Louise (Scout). The title comes from Atticus telling his children that they can shoot all the blue jays they want, but it is “a sin to kill a mockingbird” because mockingbirds do no harm.

This literary event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. The discussions will be videotaped live for later broadcast on Channel 2 Kerrville, a public service program funded in part by a grant from Humanities Texas.
