50th Anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I think most people have read this book at some point in their lives--many of us were lucky enough to read it in school.

There are a bunch of anniversary events going on this year around the country to mark the anniversary (click here for a list). I'm not aware of any events happening locally, but I plan to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird this summer and probably will watch the film adaptation as a way to personally celebrate this wonderful book. Dawn at She is Too Fond of Books is hosting a fabulous month of reading, discussion, and trivia related to the book, and Heather from Capricious Reader is hosting a July read-along/challenge, which I am signing up for.

Here are some links you might find useful or interesting for the celebration:

So, are you planning to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird? If yes, what are your plans?
