The Kewaskum Public Library and Kewaskum School District will present several opportunities for public discussion about Harper Lee’s book “To Kill a Mockingbird” during the last two weeks of January. This is the first of what we hope will be an annual program series. Each year, we will focus on a book and promote community reading and discussion of the themes of that book. “Mockingbird” is a classic American novel of life in the deep south that is both a coming-of-age story about a young girl and an examination of racism.
To provide more information about Harper Lee and To Kill a Mockingbird, KSD Librarian Jan Donohue has created a website here. It’s got TONS of great info and links to other Mockingbird sites.
There is a brochure with details of all the events we have planned available at the library. The library also has 1 inch “Mockingbird” buttons for only .50!
